Baptism is not like joining a country club. It should be done thoughtfully and prayerfully. Sponsors (Godparents) should also be chosen. Sponsors will be baptized, as they will help the child to be regular in worship, service, and prayer—not only by their teaching, but by example. Both sponsors and parents will take part in a short period of preparation. If you’re interested in baptism for you or a member of your family, please speak with a clergy person to schedule a time of conversation and preparation. A short rehearsal will also take place thirty minutes prior to the service at which a baptism takes place.
Holy Baptism is appropriately reserved for the following days at Trinity:
- The First Sunday after Epiphany, January 7, 2018
- The Great Vigil of Easter, March 31, 2018 (Please note that this service is at 9:00pm.)
- Pentecost Day, May 20, 2018
- The First Sunday after All-Saints Day, November 5, 2017
Occasionally, another date is added at the end of the Season of Epiphany or in late August.
