Each candidate for Holy Baptism is to be sponsored by one or more baptized persons. Sponsors of adults and older children present their candidates and thereby signify their endorsement of the candidates and their intention to support them by prayer and example in their Christian life. Sponsors of infants, commonly called godparents, present their candidates, make promises in their own names, and also take vows on behalf of their candidates.
Please contact the Church Office at 410-771-4466 for information.
Baptisms are performed at Saint James four times each year:
Baptism of our Lord (Early January)
Easter Vigil (Saturday Evening of Easter)
All Saints Day (Sunday closest to November 1)
