The Sacrament of Baptism celebrates the entrance of a new life into our Christian Community. The parents and the rest of the family together say: “We accept you and we accept responsibility for you. We will be with you on your journey through life. We believe that by becoming a member of our Christian Community, you will truly have a new life, because we promise to love you and to care for you just as Jesus does. You are one of us, a member of our family as truly as Jesus is.
