We recall those waters in which we were baptized into Christ’s death, died to sin and evil, and began new life in Christ. Learn more from the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops.

“At a time of dramatic global changes and challenges, Catholics in the United States face special responsibilities and opportunities. We are members of a universal Church that transcends national boundaries and calls us to live in solidarity and justice with the peoples of the world. We are also citizens of a powerful democracy with enormous influence beyond our borders. As Catholics and Americans we are uniquely called to global solidarity.”
