The Sacrament of Baptism is also known as the doorway to all the other six sacraments of the Church. It is through Baptism that we are freed of Original Sin and given our first taste of sanctifying grace. This grace floods the soul and makes it pure and pleasing to the Father. We become adopted into the family of Jesus Christ and heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven. In time and because of this first sacrament, we become ambassadors for Christ. Baptism makes us also a part of a given church family. St Cecilia’s is happy to welcome you and to be that home. Your decision to belong to us is a decision to belong to a vibrant life of faith. Take part in the life of faith that is offered in our parish. To enter deeply into the Church is to experience the wonders of Christian fellowship and God’s love for you!
