The Sacrament of Baptism is our entry into a lasting relationship with Jesus Christ. After His Resurrection and before His Ascension to heaven, Jesus commanded his disciples to go into all the world and baptize people in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. From the earliest days, the Church has done this, as St. Raymond of Penafort Parish does today.
Through the waters of Baptism three things happen: a person is washed clean of all sin (Original Sin and Actual Sin); a person is made a member of the Church; and a person is “infused” with the gifts of faith, hope and love.
Our Church Family welcomes all people who are interested in learning more or who would like to be baptized. Please call the Parish Office at 215-549-3760 to discuss this with someone on our Parish Staff.
