Baptism Update

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.

~Matthew 28:19-20a

The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that "Holy Baptism 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 baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission."

Mary, Seat of Wisdom celebrates the baptism on every individual with joy. Parents who wish to arrange for Baptism of their infant child may contact the rectory. Participation in our baptismal preparation program, Welcoming Your Child, is part of the process of welcoming your child into the parish family.

Mission Statement

The “Welcoming Your Child” Baptism Preparation Ministry prepares parents to more fully understand the Sacrament of Baptism as it blesses and welcomes their child into a community of faith by focusing on marriage and parenting as God’s call to holiness and by explaining the ceremony, symbolism, and procedures of the sacrament.
