About the Sacrament
Baptism is the gateway to all of the other Sacraments. Through Baptism, a person is made a member of the Body of Christ, incorporated into the Church and has all of his or her sins wiped away, including Original Sin inherited from Adam and Eve. The Sacrament also gives a multitude of other graces: the person becomes a dwelling place of God; a temple of the Holy Spirit and an adopted son or daughter of God the Father. Baptism is the beginning of a new life lived in God’s grace. We celebrate Baptism at the command of Jesus, who told the Apostles, “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20)
