Baptisms

Sunday morning services of Holy Baptism always makes for a joyful morning at Christ Church, as we welcome new Christians in claiming an identity as a beloved child of God.

We offer baptism on specially chosen Sundays:

  • The Sunday after the Feast of the Epiphany on January 6
  • The Easter Vigil at sunrise
  • The Feast of Pentecost
  • The visitation of our Bishop
  • A Sunday close to the Feast of the Transfiguration on August 6
  • The Sunday after All Saints' Day on November 1

When older children or adults desire baptism, preparation is necessary and is usually offered pastorally with a member of the clergy.  When infants are presented by their parents and godparents, the clergy lead the preparation with the adults gathered in the days before the ceremony.  For more information about baptism, please contact Jane Rubini by filling out this contact form.

For Parents

The Church takes seriously the vocation of parenthood, the call to nurture and protect children while raising them to know God's love. In our Book of Common Prayer, we are reminded that it is the "duty of Christian parents to make prudent provision for the well-being of their families and of all persons to make wills, while they are in health, arranging for the disposal of their temporal goods, not neglecting, if they are able, to leave bequests for religious and charitable uses."  For information on creating a will or considering a planned gift, click here.
