Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)
What is Baptism?
Through the sacrament of Holy Baptism, we welcome infants, children, and adults into the Christian faith.
Recognizing that God’s love has always been and always will be part of our lives, those being baptized respond to that gracious love by making promises to live in covenant with God. For babies and children too young to speak for themselves, their Godparents and parents respond and make the vows on their behalf.
When Baptism is Offered
We celebrate baptisms during our Sunday Services, where the entire congregation supports and welcomes the new members into the Christian community. Baptism is usually celebrated on the following dates (in keeping with Episcopal Church practice):
- The Baptism of Our Lord (first Sunday in January)
- The Great Vigil of Easter (Easter Eve)
- The Day of Pentecost (fifty days after Easter Sunday)
- All Saints’ Sunday (the first Sunday in November)
Baptism is occasionally offered on other Sundays during the year, but always during the Sunday service.
To Be Baptized at Christ Church
If you or a member of your family desire to be baptized, please contact the Rev. Lynn Campbell at 781-444-1469 or email@example.com. We will ask you to fill out a baptismal form and attend two sessions of preparation, usually held close to the date of the baptism.
