Baptisms and Marriages in the parish of Knock

The celebration of the Sacraments is an important part of our spiritual journey. Baptism is the first sacrament where you become united with Christ and the Church. Through marriage, a couple promises to help build each other up in faith, serve each other and the church and be faithful to each other until death.

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism

‘Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptisms we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in its mission.’ Vatican Catechism
