Baptism (Sacrament of Christian Initiation)                      

(CCC1213) Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua) 4 and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: " Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."5 

Holy Name Parish offers preparation classes for members of our parish who are parents and godparents. These classes are offered twice a month in Spanish and by appointment in English. To inquire about having your child baptized at Holy Name, please contact the parish office.
