Baptism forgives sin and incorporates us with Christ forming us into God’s people. It is the first sacrament of initiation into the Church. Baptism makes us the dwelling place of the most Blessed Trinity and makes each of us a holy temple. The Catholic Church baptizes people of ages, from infants to adults. It is requested that the family who has a member to be baptized be a registered family at the Church of the Immaculate Conception. The family must schedule a meeting with the pastor or Parochial Administrator prior to the baptismal date.

Baptism prayer:

“Lord Jesus Christ, hear our prayers, and with Your unfailing protection, watch over and cherish this child, whom You have blessed with the grace of Baptism. When this child has grown, grant that one may confess Your name in willing faith, be fervent in charity, and preservere courageously in the hope of reaching Your kingdom, where You live and reign for ever and ever.”
