By Baptism we become members of the Church, the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit moves us to answer Christ's call to holiness. In Baptism, we are asked to walk by the light of Christ and to trust in his wisdom. For infant baptism contact the parish office, (360) 886-2229 to begin the process. Adult baptism begins with Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Learn more on our faith formation page.
In the Sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized person is"sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit" and is strengthened for service to the Body of Christ. Youth complete confirmation in 7th grade. Adult confirmation is accomplished through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Learn more on our faith formation page.
