Baptism is much more than a formal naming service and a
good excuse for a nice party. Far more importantly, it is
also the essential Sacrament that initiates the recipient
into the Christian life. Those who are Baptised receive
saving grace and the gift of the Holy Spirit. This potentially
enables them to enter in a real and close relationship with
God that will enrich them not only for the remainder of
this life but also for all eternity. People can begin this
personal journey of faith at any age. If you are an adult and
you have not yet been Baptised, or you would like to seek
Baptism for your children, contact your local parish priest
and they’ll be happy to help you get started.
