The Sacrament of Baptism is the first sacrament that a person celebrates and the first of three sacraments referred to as "the Sacraments of Initiation." It is the basis of Christian life and makes us members of the Body of Christ. Parents who would like their child baptized should contact the church office to arrange for a meeting. Baptism requires the pouring of water and the pronouncement of the words "I baptize you in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." This is done by the priest or the deacon of the parish.

Infant Baptism: If you would like to schedule a Baptism for your child, please contact the parish office at (585) 325-3893. Adult Baptism: The Church provides a special process called Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) for anyone, seven years old or older, who wishes to be baptized Catholic. The R.C.I.A. is also for anyone who was baptized Catholic but not raised in the faith and who did not celebrate the sacraments of Eucharist/Communion or Confirmation, or for a person who was raised in a different faith and is considering becoming a Catholic.
