Baptism

Baptism is the sacrament in which the Church, through parents, spouses, or friends, initiates a person into the joy of the Catholic faith.  One comes to know God as Father, Jesus as Savior and friend, and the Holy Spirit as our sharing in the Divine Life of God through the community of faith, the Church.
