Baptism the first and fundamental sacrament and the gate to the other sacraments, is the purifying

and sanctifying sacrament of rebirth.  It is the means by which its recipients are incorporated into

the church in a sacramental bond of unity.  The Sacrament of Baptism the first of three sacraments

of initiation, is also the first of the seven sacraments in the Catholic Church.  It removes the guilt and

 effects of Original Sin and incorporates the baptized into the church, the Mystical Body of Christ on Earth

Baptisms will be on a Saturday 12:00 Noon, or during Sunday 10:00 Mass.
