Please make Baptism arrangements with a Parish Priest at the rectory office at least six months in advance.
“Baptism is God’s most beautiful and magnificent gift…. We call it a grace, anointing, enlightenment, garment of immortality, bath of rebirth, seal, and most precious gift. It is called a gift because it is conferred on those who bring nothing of their own; a grace since it is given even to the guilty; anointing for it is priestly and royal as are those who are anointed; enlightenment because it radiates light; clothing since it veils our shame; bath because it washes; and seal as it is our guard and the sign of God’s Lordship.” -St. Gregory of Nazianzus
