Welcome and Congratulations!
Baptism is the sacrament of grace, welcome and initiation for an infant, young child or adult to the community of faith. We celebrate with you and your family and know that your lives are ever changed. We rejoice with you in this blessing, as this new life brings hope and promise for a future.
At St. Nicholas, we look forward to celebrating the sacrament as we welcome your child to the Catholic community of faith. Whether this sacrament is conferred during our monthly English or Spanish language ceremonies, a robust welcome by the community of faith is an integral part of this sacrament.
