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 sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213

As the first of the seven Sacraments, and the way by which to receive the other Sacraments, Baptism unites us to Christ, who died for us and repaired our relationship with God the Father. The Sacrament of Baptism signifies our new life in Christ as the believer receives not only remission of original and personal sin but also the various fruits, gifts, and virtues necessary to live a holy life. Through the waters of Baptism, the believer is incorporated into the Body of Christ, the Church.

Baptism Preparation

Prior to a child’s baptism, parents and prospective godparents are required to attend our Baptism preparation class. This class educates each party about the Baptism process, as well as the importance of the Sacrament. Classes are held the the third Sunday of the month (unless otherwise noted) from 12:30–2:00pm, or on Monday nights by appointment. For more information about the Baptism preparation process, please contact Lindsey Hanna, Director of Parish Life, at 720.833.2702 or lhanna@allsoulscatholic.org.

Those who are over seven and seek to receive the Sacraments of Initiation do so through the RCIA process (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). This is a combined formation program that seeks to connect individuals to the parish community while simultaneously teaching them the basic of our Catholic faith and preparing them to receive not only Baptism but also Confirmation and Eucharist as well.

The first of the seven sacraments, and the “door” which gives access to the other sacraments. Baptism is the first and chief sacrament of forgiveness of sins because it unites us with Christ, who died for our sins and rose for our justification. Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist constitute the “sacraments of initiation” by which a believer receives the remission of original and personal sin, begins a new life in Christ and the Holy Spirit, and is incorporated into the Church, the Body of Christ.
