Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: "Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word."
- Catechism of the Catholic Church 1213
We hope that you and your family feel welcomed and make Our Lady of Victories Catholic Church your spiritual home.
