Sacramental Preparation


Christ sent His Apostles to all nations to preach and teach the values of the Gospel. Christ further challenged the Apostles to baptize in the name of the Trinity, so that we might be born again into the Kingdom of God.


Many centuries later, the Church even here in the Diocese of Dallas, is faced with the challenge to teach the values of Christ and share the gift of Baptism with our people. It is our responsibility to catechize the People of God properly. It is also our role to support the parishes in celebrating the sacrament meaningfully. The Church wishes to help parents understand their role as the first teachers of their children in the ways of faith. It is the purpose of these guidelines to assist each pastor and parish in their particular needs.
