What to Expect
Every baptism service at All Saints’ begins with a procession of banners created by members of this committee. The felt banners, bearing the names of the newly baptized, are given as keepsakes when the service is over. We have 7 baptism services throughout the year and we make around 65–70 banners per year. Two to three weeks before a baptism a request is made to the banner makers asking for banner making availability. A banner packet for those who volunteer, it left at the church, for you to take home and assemble. Banner assembly requires tracing, cutting felt, ironing, gluing and a very small amount of easy hand sewing.
