The Sacrament of Baptism, the first of the sacraments of initiation, is our entrance into the Church. Through Baptism, we are cleansed of Original Sin and receive sanctifying grace, the life of God within our souls. That grace prepares us for the reception of the other sacraments and helps us to live our lives as Christians. Baptism is the necessary precondition both for living the Christian life and for entering Heaven.
To have an infant Baptized at Our Lady’s Cathedral, it is necessary to be registered members of the parish, attend a Baptismal Seminar, have the permission of the Rector, and schedule baptism through the parish office.
