“Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children 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." (The CCC, Article I, paragraph 1213)
In preparation for infant baptism, instructional classes are held for new and expectant parents. These classes will help them understand their responsibility in sharing the Catholic faith with their child. They will also familiarize them with the Rite of Baptism. Contact the Parish Office, (513) 921-7527 ext 101, two months in advance to schedule your infant’s Baptism.
In preparation for adult baptism, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is offered throughout the year. This group meets on Wednesday evenings. For further information click here.
