Baptism/ Bautizos

For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.

Para católicos, el Sacramento de Bautismo es el primer paso de una jornada para toda la vida de compromiso y discipulado. Seamos bautizados de niños o adultos, el Bautismo es como la Iglesia celebra y decreta el abrazo de Dios
