What is Baptism?
Why is it critical to our faith?
How does it bring about new spiritual life?
When you affirm your baptismal promises at Mass, do you grasp the full commitment of those vows?
The first sacrament of initiation is not just a one-time event, but an invitation to a lifelong journey of Christian discipleship.
Drawing on the trusted and popular Catholic Update newsletter, the Catholic Update Guide to Baptism will answer your questions about Baptism. Whether you were baptized as an infant or as an adult, this guide will help you fully understand and accept God's call to be renewed in faith and love.
