Baptism

The Sacrament of Baptism is called the “first sacrament” and the “door of the Church”, through which we become members of the Church. It is the entrance into a new life; we are reborn from the state of slaves of sin into the freedom of God’s Children. For Catholics it is the event of great value.

Dear Parents! Your spiritual involvement is essential in preparing for the baptism of your child. Parents are the first and most important teachers of the faith. The faith of your child will grow as it witnesses your Catholic faith in action. So it is important that you attend the Sunday’s Mass. Your presence is vital for the whole Parish community.

SPECIFIC PREPARATIONS. The Parents should contact Fr. Kazimierz, the Parish Priest, to agree upon the details. Usually they are required to attend two baptismal preparation meetings. The Godparents, who are to be practising Catholics, should attend these meetings as well.

For adults, the proper preparation for the Sacrament of Baptism is the RCIA course (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults).
