Baptisms in 2021

 

St. James has returned to the Episcopal tradition of baptisms on four special days of the Year: All Saints Day, the Baptism of Our Lord, Easter Vigil and Pentecost.  We are observing Covid precautions with masking and social distancing and ventilation.

Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. Each candidate for Holy Baptism is sponsored by one or more baptized persons.

Sponsors of infants (godparents), present their candidates, make promises in their own names, and also take vows on behalf of their candidates. Sponsors of adults and older children present their candidates to signify their endorsement of the candidates and their intention to support them by prayer and example in their Christian life.

Pastor Joe+ meets with each family in via ZOOM  prior to baptism.
