Baptism is the first of the sacraments, the gateway to life in the Spirit and life in the community of faith which is Church. Through Baptism we are washed clean from all sin and are reborn as sons and daughters of God through his son, Jesus Christ. By the sacrament we become part of the Church and sharers in the Gospel mission.
The Catholic Church distinguishes between infants who are brought for Baptism before the "age of reason", that is generally seven years of age, and children who are of teachable age. Infants accept the faith through the faith of their parents, and so Nativity Parish offers a series of meetings to prepare the parents for the baptism ceremony and for leading their children in a life of faith.
