Baptism of Children

Baptism of Children at OLC Church

The celebration of an infant’s baptism is a joyous occasion for that child’s family and for the family of the Church. Baptism celebrates the fact that God loves us so much that God calls us to have a special, personal relationship with Him. A relationship so close that God claims us as His own and gives us the privilege of calling Him “Our Father”!

Just as the birth of a child leads parents to reflect on the gift of human life, so the baptism of a child leads parents, and the whole parish, to reflect on this sacrament and what it means to be a part of God’s Church.   As parents reflect upon the meaning of their child’s baptism, the parish community also reflects and joins in the celebration of baptism.  Therefore, we celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism during Sunday Mass when the community gathers to celebrate the mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus.  Our community welcomes these children into the life of grace and into our parish community.

Baptismal Preparation

The Baptism Preparation at OLC gives parents and godparents an opportunity to more fully understand the meaning of the sacrament of baptism in their own life. Baptism is not only something we receive, but also a way of living, a vision of life, a relationship with Jesus, and relationship with God’s Church.
