Holy Baptism is a sacrament that expresses God’s unconditional love
for us, our incorporation into the Body of Christ, our reception of the
gift of the Holy Spirit, and our commitment to be nurtured in our faith.
In the Episcopal Church, the service of Holy Baptism takes place four
times a year: the first Sunday after Epiphany (January 7-13), the
Easter Vigil (the night before Easter), the Day of Pentecost in the
Spring, and All Saint’s Day (the first Sunday in November).
Adults interested in baptism, and parents who wish to have their
children baptized, should attend church for at least two months prior to
the service of Holy Baptism and take part in baptism preparation.
