About the Sacrament of Baptism:  The Sacrament of Baptism is the first of the three Sacraments of Initiation, the other two being Confirmation and Holy Communion.  Once baptized, a person becomes a member of the Church. Click here for the Diocese of St. Augustine Baptismal Brochure all of your questions about the Sacrament, Godparents, and more can be found here.
