baptismal fontBaptism is the rite of initiation into the Christian faith. The service of Holy Baptism takes place at the 9:00 and 11:15 a.m. services at least six times a year except during Lent. Because it is a rite of initiation into a community of faith, baptism is not administered privately at All Saints’.

The Episcopal Church practices infant baptism. We baptize people as babies as a symbol of the free grace of God that comes to all without requiring any action on our part.

If you decide to have your child baptized at All Saints’, the clergy and the Guild of the Christ Child will work with you in preparing for your child’s baptism. The Guild of the Christ Child is a volunteer group of women who provide a warm welcome and hospitality to the families of those being baptized. A guild member will meet with your family the day before the baptism at the seminar. On Sunday morning, the day of the baptism, a guild member will greet you and escort you and your family to your pew(s) for the service.

Space is limited at each service, so please contact Pat Kiley at least one month prior to the date you are interested in.
