Baptism incorporates people into the Church, joins them with the death and resurrection of Christ, effects forgiveness of sins and positions us to the worship God and the wider mission of the Church. Baptism is not an individual event, but a communal event. In the case of infant baptism, it is clear that parents are bringing their infants to the church because they intend to pass on the faith within the context of this local community.
Registered families wishing to have their child baptized are asked to attend a Baptismal Preparation Class. Please refer to the current Sunday Bulletin http://www.seekandfind.com/find/st-edward-the-confessor-church-12065 for the next class date and time and call the Parish Office at 371-7372 ext. 221 to attend.
