Are you considering Baptism of a child?
The Staff of St. Patrick Cathedral offer our congratulations on the birth or upcoming birth of your child. We pray that God will bless and guide you in your preparation for 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. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: Baptism is a sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.” (Catechism1213) Through baptism we become part of the royal, priestly people of God, called to holy lives of prayer and service.
