Holy Baptism

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism marks an individual’s formal entry into the Christian family and the life of the Church. People of all ages may be baptized. Infants are baptised on the strength of their parents’ and godparents’ commitment to raise them in the faith and life of the Church. Your child is precious to you and precious to God. At Baptism you make a decision to start your child on a journey of faith. The church and the godparents support the family and the child in this decision.

Baptisms at Grace Church are celebrated as part of the 10 a.m. Sunday service occasionally throughout the year, but especially at Easter, Pentecost, and All Saints’ Tide. Candidates for baptism, or their sponsors, are invited to meet with the Rector to learn about and reflect on the meaning of the promises to be made. Our expectation is that candidates will continue in their involvement with the parish after they have become members of the church through the sacrament of Holy Baptism.

We welcome all inquiries about Holy Baptism.
