Baptism PowerPoint Sermon


Baptism is the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments (CCC 1213). It is like birth – indeed, Christ calls it a “new birth” (John 3:5), a birth from above. 
Baptism has two effects, one of which takes something away and the other of which gives something. “Through Baptism we are (1) freed from sin and (2) reborn as sons and daughters of God; we become members of Christ incorporated into the Church” (CCC 1213).
All parents are required to go through Baptism preparation in anticipation of the Baptism of their first child.  To schedule a Baptism and receive the preparatory materials, call the parish office at 440-526-1686.
