The sacrament of baptism is a profoundly significant and joyous event in the Catholic Church. Through baptism, we are initiated into the Christian faith and become members of the Church community. This sacred ritual is a visible sign of God's love and grace, symbolising our spiritual rebirth and cleansing from sin.

Baptism incorporates us into the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and it is through this sacrament that we are united with Him and receive the Holy Spirit. It is a sacrament of initiation, marking the beginning of our lifelong journey of faith. In baptism, water is used as a symbol of purification and new life, and the celebrant, usually a priest, blesses the person being baptised, either through immersion, pouring, or sprinkling. This sacrament also serves as an invitation for parents and godparents to nurture the spiritual growth of the baptised person, guiding them in their faith as they grow. Through baptism, we are called to live as disciples of Christ, sharing in the mission of the Church and embracing the gifts and responsibilities bestowed upon us by God.

"And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptised and wash your sins away, calling on his name."

ACTS 22:16
