The Sacrament of Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is the foundation of Christian life, the entrance to the life in the Spirit and access to the other Sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from original sin, become heirs to the Kingdom of God, are incorporated into the Church and become sharers in the Mission of the Church. [Catechism of the Catholic Church 1994 Reference: 1213]

Baptisms of infants and young children are celebrated, for families who are members of the parish, every Sunday at 2:15 p.m. in the church. Parents generally must attend a preparation session before the baptism can be celebrated. Appointments for the preparation session and baptism should be made with the parish office at (410) 531-6040.

Baptisms of school age children may need to be arranged through our religious education program. Please contact Vickie Yozwiak at (410) 531-6688 for more information.

Baptisms of adults are arranged through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Contact the parish office at (410) 531-6040 for more information.
