Baptism Preparation

St. Mary Magdalene

Baptism is a Sacrament of Initiation that welcomes a child or person of any age into our faith community.  Because the child is unable to express faith, the Church invites the parents and godparents into a preparation process prior to the Baptism celebration. Facilitated by lay minister parishioners and through prayer, reflection, scripture, and faith sharing, parents and godparents are guided and supported in their responsibilities as faith witnesses for the child.  For Adult Sacramental Preparation, including Baptism, see R.C.I.A.
