Baptism » Celebrating

PathwaysThe third step in the Christian initiation of young people and adults is the celebration of the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and Eucharist; usually occurs at Easter.

Through this final step the elect, receiving pardon for their sins, are admitted into the people of God. They are graced with adoption as children of God and are led by the Holy Spirit into the promised fullness of time begun in Christ

and, as they share in the Eucharistic sacrifice and meal, even to a foretaste of the kingdom of God.
