Baptism is one of the sacraments of initiation through which we are given a share in the life of the Risen Jesus and are commissioned to carry on, within the Church community, the work of the Risen Jesus in the world today. In other words, Baptism is the sacrament through which we begin our “initiation” into the Body of Christ. This initiation is completed when one receives First Eucharist and is confirmed.
