In the Episcopal tradition we believe that Holy Baptism is full initiation into Christ’s Body, the Church, by water and the Holy Spirit. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble.
At the Chapel of the Cross, the sacrament of Holy Baptism is offered to all—infants and adults—who have not yet been baptized and who wish to follow the way of Jesus through participation in the life of this parish.
Upcoming Baptisms are scheduled at regular Eucharistic services on:
Thanksgiving Day (11/23/23)
First Sunday after the Epiphany (1/7/24)
The Great Vigil (3/30/24)
The second Sunday of Easter (4/7/24)
And, other dates designated by the Rector.
Baptismal instruction is required for all candidates who can speak for themselves and for parents of those who cannot. Sponsors (godparents) are also invited. If you are interested in scheduling a baptism, or if you are interested in giving altar flowers in honor of a candidate, or in memory of someone important to the candidate who has died, please be in touch with Ellen Cole .
