Baptism is the sacrament of faith. The faith required for Baptism is not a perfect and mature faith, but a beginning that is called to develop. The catechumen or the godparent is asked: “What do you ask of God’s Church?”  The response is: “Faith!” For all the baptized, children or adults, faith must grow after Baptism.  Preparation for Baptism leads only to the threshold of new life. Baptism is the source of that new life in Christ from which the entire Christian life springs forth.

The different effects of Baptism are signified by the elements of the sacramental rite.  Immersion in water symbolizes not only death and purification, but also regeneration and renewal. Thus the two principal effects are purification from sins and new birth in the Holy Spirit. Baptism not only purifies from all sins, but also makes the neophyte “a new creature,” an adopted child of God, who has become a “partaker of the divine nature,” member of Christ and coheir with him, and a temple of the Holy Spirit.

Baptism makes us members of the Body of Christ: “Therefore we are members one of another.” Baptism incorporates us into the Church. From the baptismal fonts is born the one People of God of the New Covenant, which transcends all the natural or human limits of nations, cultures, races, and sexes: “For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body.”

The Sacrament of Baptism is administered under two forms in the Catholic Church:

  1. For children under seven years old, there is the Rite of Baptism for Children (RBC).

    • For children under seven years old, see Children’s Baptism.

  2. For older children and adults, there is the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).

    • The Church uses the RCIA form of Baptism even for a child of seven

      • because the child is able to understand what is happening at Baptism.

    • All who go through this second form, even children,

      • receive the sacrament of Confirmation and first Holy Communion at the same time as Baptism.

    • At Our Lady of Refuge parish, we have separate groups for older children and teen/adults:

      • For children, 2nd grade to 8th grade, see Catechetical

      • For teen/adults, 9th grade or older, see Adult Baptism

Clase Bautismal

El Primer, Domingo del mes – 2:00 pm

Antes de tomar la clase bautismal usted necesita tener una entrevista. Por favor
llame a la oficina parroquial para hacer
una cita.

El equipo parroquial y los fieles de la Parroquia “Santa Catalina de Alejandría” les dan una cordial bienvenida a la preparacion para el Bautismo de su hijo/a. Antes de planear la fecha del bautizo les pedimos que por favor lean este folleto, y sigan lo indicado en el. Les queremos agradecer anticipadamente por su cooperación, y esperamos que el bautizo de su hijo/a sea una experiencia de renovación de la vida de fe cristiana de toda su familia y también de  nuestra comunidad parroquial.

¿Por qué bautizar a su Hijo/a?
La celebración del Bautismo de niños pequeños ha sido la práctica de la Iglesia por muchos siglos. Los padres que bautizan a sus hijos pequeños toman esta decisión a partir de su propia experiencia de fe. Para que un sacramento sea válido, el sacramento debe recibirse libremente. Por ende es necesario que los padres que desean bautizar a sus hijos, lo hagan libremente y con la clara intención de educar y formar a sus hijos/as en la fe católica.

El Bautismo marca el principio de la nueva vida en Cristo como hijo/a de Dios. Como tal celebramos el renacimiento que recibimos por medio de nuestro bautismo en Cristo Jesús.

Es importante que los padres reconozcan que ellos son los maestros principales de la fe para sus hijos. Ellos forman la llamada Iglesia doméstica, y como tal, son llamados a ser los principales testigos del Evangelio ante sus hijos, tanto de palabra, como con su ejemplo de vida cristiana. Animamos a los padres a fortalecer su propia vida cristiana para poder ser verdaderos educadores de sus hijos.
