Baptism


 

The Sacrament of Baptism becomes the basis of our Christian life, the gateway to life in the Holy Spirit, and the door which allows us to experience the other sacraments of the church. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons and daughters of God. By being baptized, we become members of the Catholic Church and our parish family.


Children are normally baptized within a few months after birth. Baptisms are held for registered members of the parish the second and third Sunday of each month, and a short series of classes in preparation for baptism are required. To register for the classes, contact the parish office at mcgrathb@svdpomaha.org or (402) 496-7988, ext. 230.

For more information on the requirements for baptism for children, please download our Baptismal Guidelines.
