Baptisms

In the Episcopal Church, baptism is the rite of full initiation as a member of the Body of Christ and into the life of the church. This momentous event represents a wealth of meanings, from being born anew, to living in Christ’s love and service. Those who sponsor a child for baptism or those adults who are baptized make life-changing and life-giving promises to God.

Baptism is always celebrated at a Sunday Eucharist, during one of the five Baptismal feasts:

    The First Sunday after Epiphany: The Baptism of Christ (January)
    The Great Vigil of Easter (March or April)
    The Day of Pentecost (May or June)
    The Feast of St. Stephen (observed) (the last Sunday in August)
    All Saints Sunday (First Sunday in November)
