Baptism is initiation. When you are baptized, it means that you belong to something. It is your entry into belonging to the community of the church through a ritual immersion in water and the invocation of the Trinity. Baptism marks the beginning of the Christian life by water and the Holy Spirit.
Baptism at Christ Church occurs on the four Sundays appointed as special feast days for Baptism.
They are The Baptism of Christ (January), Easter Day, Pentecost (late spring), and All Saints Day (November). We often add a fifth Sunday during the Summer, as needed.
Pre-baptismal instruction with the clergy usually occurs on the Saturday preceeding the Sunday of the Baptism. For more information on scheduling a Baptism, please submit the Baptismal Information Form.
