Considered one of the three sacraments of initiation into Christian life and community; As such, this sacrament should be administered among the body of witnesses to receive the child and commit to raising him/her into the Christian life.
Through Baptism we are born into a new life with God. We die to sin and are re-born into the grace of being from that very moment Children of God, Brethren of Christ, and Heirs to the Kingdom of Heaven.
When you baptize your child, you take a commitment to make a disciple of him/her and to instruct him/her in the tradition of the Church. It is recommended that children be baptized as soon as it is possible after birth.
If you prefer a more intimate gathering among friends and family, our clergy is available to perform the Baptism in your home or place of designation, so as long as it is performed among a group of witnesses.
