The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is the essential event in Christian initiation. By water and the Holy Spirit, your child will be brought into Christ’s Body, the Church, and will then require nurturing within this Family.
As parents, you are the effective “contact persons” of the Church Family for your child at this stage and are responsible for your child’s nurturing in the Christian life. You are invited to choose sponsors (godparents) who will share with you in this responsibility and who will join you in presenting your child for Baptism.
At the time of Baptism, you, the godparents, and the Cathedral congregation will make promises on behalf of the child who is, as yet, unable to speak for him/herself. As the child grows, you will share with the child what has been promised and enable him/her to grow in the knowledge and love of God, and to accept the responsibilities of being a member of God’s Church.
If you or your child are ready for baptism, we invite you to join us for regular worship. You can make an appointment to meet with the clergy about this vital step by contacting the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
