Baptism

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit, and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God. ~ Catechism of the Catholic Church

Baptism incorporates us into the life, death and resurrection of Christ and the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit in the world.
