Holy Baptism and Chrismation

Baptism Guidelines

The Rites of Initiation into the Church, since ancient times, are:

  • Water baptism (“in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit” Mt 28.19)

  • Anointing with Chrism (“the seal of the gift of the Holy Spirit” Acts 19.6)

  • Holy Communion (“He who eats my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him” Jn 6.56)
