According to the Book of Common Prayer, “Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble.” Baptism is incorporated into regular worship services and occasionally at other times for unusual pastoral circumstances. It is the outward and visible action that connects a person to God in a covenant relationship and so belongs in public worship rather than private ceremony. Pre-baptismal counseling for children and adults may also be arranged by contacting the Parish Office. The Rector will be happy to talk with you about Baptism.
