SACRAMENTS & BAPTISM
Baptism is the first of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church, and it marks the beginning of a person’s journey in to faith with God. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation. In some denominations this Sacrament is referred to as Christening. Literally making Christ-like. Through Baptism we become members of Christ, and we are welcomed into the Church.
For those who wanted to have their child/children baptism, parents are requested to fill up the Baptism Registration Form (HERE) and attend the 2 day baptism classes (at most and hour each) at the Parish Office. Baptism Registration form together with the admin fee should be forwarded to the Parish Office before attending baptism classes.
Baptism classes are scheduled on the first two Tuesdays of the month, 7pm at the Parish Office. Baptism rites are scheduled every 3rd Saturday of the month., 10am.
