Baptism

Baptism

Involvement in the Sacramental Life of the Church is a primary component of being Catholic. These wonderful gifts help us grow closer to one another and to our God. We are blessed as Catholics to have them be part of our tradition. It is our expectation that each individual and/or family desiring to enter into one or more of these processes is already a practicing member of OLV and wishes to deepen that relationship, growing in Faith and their connection to OLV.

 


Sacrament of Baptism

“Baptism, the gate to the sacraments, necessary for salvation in fact or at least in intention, by which men and women are freed from their sins, are reborn as children of God and, configured to Christ by an indelible character, are incorporated in the Church, is validly conferred only by washing with true water together with the form of words.” (Canon 849)
