Sacraments I: Baptism and its Confirmation | Dominican University College

Sacraments I: Baptism and its Confirmation

This course is about Christian initiation: the evolution of the rites, the meaning of Christian baptism in Scripture and Tradition, baptism as entry into the Body of Christ, as adoption by the Father, and as the beginning of a new life into the Spirit. The eschatological dimension will also be studied. As far as confirmation is concerned, we will look at the rite of the laying on of hands, the link between baptism and confirmation and the meaning of Confirmation in Christian lifestyle.
