In this new Catholic video, Fr. Nick Zientarski unpacks the true meaning of the Catholic sacrament of baptism. More than a one-time celebration, baptizing your child in the Catholic Church is a commitment to a new life of faith, prayer, and service for your whole family. Fr. Nick explains what every Catholic parent needs to know, from the role of godparents and the profession of faith to the “exorcism” and the importance of ongoing faith formation. Three families join him in this video – the Pierres, Quintinillas, and Simons – to share their real-life joys and challenges of living out the grace of Catholic baptism at home in their “domestic church” and in their local parishes.
“Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit… I am with you always, until the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19
