Infant Baptism"Let us remember the date of our Baptism, the date of our initial sanctification, of our reception of the Holy Spirit from the Father, and of great forgiveness."
The birth of a new child is a very happy and holy event. Therefore, when we introduce the child into the Church Community through Baptism, it calls for a celebration. Baptism preparation anticipates this celebration. Participants enjoy and appreciate the opportunity to discuss and share views on this important sacrament.
Our Baptism preparation program was initiated to help parents and sponsors understand why we baptize our children. The subject is discussed in practical rather than theological terms. The basic themes of Christian Community and parental responsibility are developed in the overall context of the Baptismal Ceremony. Thus, the Baptism event has more meaning for those present.
Parents are required to take an Infant Baptism Session prior to the Baptism of their child. Please fill out the online Baptism Registration Form and complete the Baptism Preparation Session – details below.
BAPTISM PREPARATION SESSION
We are resuming in person Baptism Preparation Sessions in September 2022. Sessions will be held once a month on the second Monday of the month at 7 pm at the Church. Please contact the Office or the Deacon if you plan to attend.
For the time being, we will continue to offer online baptism preparation for those people who are not yet ready to return to in-person Sessions. These Sessions are offered through Formed. There is a series called “Reborn”, which consists of 3 videos. When you have watched all three videos, please contact Deacon Dan to arrange a Baptism date and complete the Baptism Registration Form above.
