|The Sacrament of Baptism is usually administered on the first and third Sundays of each month at 12:30 p.m. (no baptisms on holiday weekends). Arrangements for other days can be made with one of the Deacons. Any couple who has not attended a pre-baptism program at Holy Trinity Parish is expected to attend this class. The pre-baptism program is offered on the last Monday every month from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m. in the Parish Center. The weekly church bulletin lists the date for the Baptism class each month. If you have attended the class and wish to schedule a Baptism, please call Lisa at the Parish Center 829-2197.|
The Sacrament Of Baptism
BAPTISM: The first of the seven sacraments, and the "door" which gives access to the other sacraments. Baptism is the first and chief sacrament of forgiveness of sins because it unites us with Christ, who died for our sins and rose for our justification. Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist constitute the "sacraments of initiation" by which a believer receives the remission of original and personal sin, begins a new life in Christ and the Holy Spirit, and is incorporated into the Church, the Body of Christ. The rite of Baptism consists in immersing the candidate in water, or pouring water on the head, while pronouncing the invocation of the Most Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (977, 1213 ff.; 1275, 1278).
