We welcome you to the parish Baptismal Preparation process.

The Lord has blessed you and our parish community with a beautiful gift – your child (or children) – the visible sign of your love for each other. You have played a very important part in God’s plan of creation, and with Him have given life to a new member of His family. What more beautiful way can we bring your child into God’s family than through the Sacrament of Baptism!
