Baptism

"In baptism a person through washing with natural water with the invocation of the name of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is freed from sin, reborn to new life, puts on Christ and is incorporated in the church which is His Body" (CCEO, can 675.1).

Requirements:

Parishioners of St. George’s Cathedral who wish to have their child baptized in the cathedral must contact the parish priest who will make an appointment for a mandatory pre-baptism session for the parents and godparents. During these sessions such things as the effects of baptism on the candidate, and the responsibilities of the parents and godparents in the life of the child will be discussed. Also, it is required that at least one of the godparents must be Catholic.
