Sacrament of Baptism

baptismsSacrament  of Baptism.

Baptism is the foundation of Christian Life… it is upon baptism that we build our lives as followers of Christ. Baptism is the sacrament in which we are freed from original sin, become children of God, and members of the Church. We are unable to receive any other sacraments until we first have been baptized. It is because of our baptism that we have hope of eternal life!
