“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” 

(Matthew 28:19-20)


Baptism is the doorway to all the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are joined to the new life of the Risen Christ, we become members of the Church, the Body of Christ, we are forgiven of sin, and we share in Jesus’ mission of service and healing in the world.
