Baptism

Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua), 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.”

Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1213

Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as an adopted child of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church (the Body of Christ) and made sharers in her mission.

Baptisms at St. Jude

Baptisms of children are regularly scheduled. A pre-baptismal session is required.

Have you recently had, or are soon expecting, a new baby? Call the office at 303.988.6435 to sign up for one of our upcoming Baptismal Preparation sessions! Parents and godparents are required to attend a session before scheduling the baby’s baptism.

Baptismal Preparation Classes are held in the lower level of the community center from 9:00am to 12:00pm on the following dates:

  • November 20, 2021

We look forward to welcoming your new baby into the Church.

Those who are over 18 and seek to be baptized in the Church, do so through the RCIA process (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). This is a combined formation program that seeks to connect individuals to the parish community while simultaneously teaching them the basic of our Catholic faith and preparing them to receive not only Baptism, but Confirmation and Eucharist as well (normally celebrated together at the Annual Easter Vigil).

The first of the seven sacraments, and the “door” which gives access to the other sacraments. Baptism is the first and chief sacrament of forgiveness of sins because it unites us with Christ, who died for our sins and rose for our justification. Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist constitute the “sacraments of initiation” by which a believer receives the remission of original and personal sin, begins a new life in Christ and the Holy Spirit, and is incorporated into the Church, the Body of Christ.
