Baptism

Baptism

This sacrament in the Episcopal Church, signifies full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ.

Baptism is a joyous occasion as we welcome new Christians in our midst and we are delighted that you are considering taking this important step with your child. We celebrate baptisms at the 11 am and 6 pm Sunday Eucharists.

Infant and Child Baptisms

Grace Cathedral typically administers the sacrament of baptism five times a year. Because infants and children are too young to make the baptismal promises themselves, parents and sponsors (also known as godparents) speak on their behalf. A preparation class is held on the Saturday before the baptisms. Participation is required for parents and recommended for godparents.

We offer age-appropriate materials for school-aged children.

Adult Baptism

We have ongoing opportunities to prepare adults to enter more fully into Christian life and faith. 

Registering Your Baptism

The Episcopal Church recognizes any baptism administered with water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. You can be registered as a baptized member of Grace Cathedral if you have been baptized in a church other than the Episcopal Church.
