Baptism makes us the dwelling place of the Most Blessed Trinity, makes each of us a holy temple, for “holy is the temple of God, and this temple you are.” (1 Corinthians 3:17) Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation by which we are freed from all sin and are endowed with the gift of divine life, are made members of the Church, and are called to holiness and mission.

Please take a moment to read our Baptism Handbook for more information about having your baby baptized at St. Francis of Assisi.

If you are an adult and are interested in being baptized, please see the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). If you have any questions, please contact Christi Schott in the office at the Parish Center. (504) 891-4479.
