"In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" - Matthew 28:19.



This initial sacrament frees us from sin through God's sanctifying grace. Through the waters of Baptism the Holy Spirit seals us as belonging to Christ. Baptism is the foundation of communion between all Christians.
