Please contact Julie at the Cluster Office, 715-682-7620 to register you and your child for baptismal preparation. A priest or deacon will be assigned for the preparation and will contact you soon.
Baptism is the sacramental foundation of the Christian life. A person lives in Christ by living as a member of His Body, the Church. What we see, hear, and do in this sacrament is an outward expression of God’s unseen works. Baptism brings a person into membership through initiation into the mystery of faith among the people of God.
As the Rite of Baptism states: Parents, you are the first teachers of your child in the ways of faith. May you also be the best of teachers, bearing witness to the faith by what you say and do. This witness includes weekly worship, daily prayer, parish membership, living according to Christian morality and the conscious love of God and neighbor. There is no substitute for your faith, example, or teaching.
