"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."
To baptize means to “plunge” or to “immerse” into the water. Baptism is a sacrament in which we receive God’s life and love. It takes away original sin, and we become children of God. In Baptism, we celebrate a new birth, we are reborn into the life of God.
Through Baptism, we are empowered by sacramental grace to turn over our lives, fully and constantly, to the God who loves us. The grace of Baptism allows us to overcome our sins of envy, selfishness, lust and greed and to fall ever more deeply in love with God. We are enabled by God's grace to live according to the moral teachings of Christ and His Church, to keep the commandments and to truly live our parish motto: "Love One Another."
