Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which the Christian community welcomes new members into the Household of God. Infants, children, and adults are baptized during services on specific Sundays of the year and at the Easter Vigil.
Baptisms are scheduled on the following Sundays:
The First Sunday after the Epiphany (the Sunday falling between January 7 and January 13), the Great Vigil of Easter (the evening service on Holy Saturday that marks the first celebration of Easter each year), the Second Sunday of Easter (one week after Easter Sunday), Pentecost Sunday (seven weeks after Easter Sunday), All Saints Sunday (first Sunday of November). Private baptisms are generally not permitted except in unique pastoral circumstances.
On the day before public baptism, parents and godparents (sponsors) are expected to participate in a two-hour Baptism preparation led by Cathedral clergy. Parents seeking Baptism for their children must ordinarily be pledging members of the Cathedral who are actively committed to supporting the ministry of the Cathedral, worshipping regularly, and participating as deeply as possible in the life of the Cathedral.
To discuss baptism further, please contact Margaret Harrison, the Parish Coordinator.
