1/7

Baptism is an important Christian ritual wherein the new member is formally accepted in the church. It is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through this sacrament we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.

 

Besides being a religious celebration, it also became a cultural tradition of family gatherings and renewal of relations of the society's institutions. As a religious institution, the parish is committed to delivering the solemnity of celebration for the new member.
