With the priest or deacon, godparents, parish, friends, and family, your baby's baptism will be a celebration and sign of lifelong love and grace.

It includes: An overview of sin and salvationA short history of baptismal practices and traditionsThe meaning of the sacrament and its symbolsA step-by-step guide to the riteFrequent references to Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and other Church documents
