Baptism is God’s most beautiful and magnificent gift…We call it gift, grace, anointing, enlightenment, garment of immortality, bath of rebirth, seal, and most precious gift. It is called gift because it is conferred on those who bring nothing of their own; grace since it is given even to the guilty; baptism because sin is buried in the water; anointing for it is priestly and royal as are those who are anointed; enlightenment because it radiates light; clothing since it veils our shame; bath because it washes; and seal as it is our guard and the sign of God’s Presence. — St. Gregory
At St. Leonard Church baptisms are celebrated at Mass. If you would like more information about this sacrament we encourage you to talk to one of the priests after mass. He will be glad to talk to you about the baptismal preparation. You can also call the parish office if you wish to know more about this sacrament.
