Baptism

Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into the Christian Church. This Sacrament is open to infants, children, and adults who have not been previously baptized. Each candidate for baptism may have as many as three Sponsors (Godparents) who present the candidate and make promises that they will support the candidate by prayer and example of Christian life. Sponsors and parents of infants and young children take vows on behalf of the child who cannot speak for themselves. Baptism normally takes place on special church Feast Days and certain Sunday services. Parents and candidates meet with the Rector before selecting a baptismal date. Please fill out the form below to submit your application to the church office.

Grace Church appreciates a thanksgiving offering for the Baptism. Checks may be made payable to “Grace Church”.
If you would also like flowers on the altar in thanksgiving, a separate check should be made to the “Flower Guild” for $40.
