The Alleged Propitiatory Sacrifice

Ivan D. Aquilina says, in ‘John Cosin and His Contribution to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer’,

The second prayer professes that those engaged in the Eucharist are celebrating the memorial of Christ’s Passion and Sacrifice, and that whilst doing so those present shall receive the remission of sins, and therefore be partakers in the Paschal Mystery. Cosin clearly expresses the celebration of the Eucharist as bringing about forgiveness of sins, since it is a memorial of the redeeming events. Through liturgical prayers Cosin demonstrates the teaching of the Church that the Eucharist is a propitiatory sacrifice….

Does this mean baptism is a propitiatory sacrifice too, since it is said to remit sins?
