Baptism

The Lord, Jesus Christ said, “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.”  (Matthew 28:19-20)

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states:  Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit 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 and in the word.” (paragraph 1213)

Arrangements for Baptism should be made in advance as preparation is required for parents.  Prior arrangements for your class session and Baptism time must be made with the parish office.

Please contact the parish office at 419-396-1523 or  parishoffice@olcshrine.com
