Teams assist families in preparing for the baptism of their children through a deepening understanding of Christian parenting.  Through prayer and sharing, parents learn what baptism means to their family and how to raise their children in the faith.  (If your child is over the age of 7 or if you are an adult needing baptism, please see the information about RCIA).
