Sacraments > Baptism
The Sacrament of Baptism is the first Sacrament of Initiation. It involves ritual washing with water. Water is commonly known as a symbol of life and cleansing – that’s what it means in Baptism too. Water is poured over a person’s head (or the person can be immersed in water). This action is a symbol of washing away Original Sin, rising to new life in Christ and marks the beginning of a person’s participation in the mission of the Church.
While many people are baptised as young children, adult baptisms regularly take place across Brisbane archdiocese. If you are interested in baptising your child or being baptised yourself, please get in touch with your local parish or church community.
