The soul is regenerated in the sacred waters of baptism and thus becomes God's child. - St. Maximilian Kolbe
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 children 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." CCC 1213
Pre-baptismal classes are required for parishioners wishing to have their children baptized at St. Pascal's. Special arrangements for older children can be made. To arrange for classes and to schedule the celebration of Baptism, contact the parish office at 651.774.1585, or by email, at least two months prior to desired date.
