About Holy Baptism and Application
We are thrilled that you or someone you love is considering being baptized into the community of Christ. 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."
Baptisms at 11AM are generally celebrated on the principal feast days of the church. They are Easter Day, Ascension Day, The Day of Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, All Saints' Day (November 1), Christmas Day (December 25), and the Epiphany, January 6.
Baptisms at 8AM, 9AM and 5:15PM are appropriately administered within the Eucharist as the chief service on a Sunday or other feast.
In addition to getting to know you, we ask four things:
- We invite you to attend with your Spouse and Sponsors/Godparents, a baptism preparation class, 9AM, the Saturday prior to the scheduled baptism.
- We ask you attend the next regularly scheduled seminar "Life at St. Chrys."
- Baptized members and their families are invited and encouraged to connect with the mission and ministries of St. Chrysostom's, and find a ministry you can share in. Clergy members are available to help you get connected.
- Baptized members and their families participate in the mission and ministry of this church community by making a financial pledge commitment to the work of God in and through this church. You can make your PLEDGE ONLINE or contact the church office for a pledge card.
Please provide us with the information requested below. A member of our clergy will contact you soon after its submission.
