Baptism

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.
-  Catechism of the Catholic Church

 

Baptism is a sacrament of initiation.  It is God’s call to be members of the Christian community, which is hope-giving and redemptive.  As baptized Catholic Christians, we, like Jesus Christ, are called into service for the sake of the community: to bring the light of Christ into the world.
