Parish Sacraments. Family Sacraments.

Holy Baptism is one of the Church's seven Sacraments. The Sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace.

The Sacraments are the most holy of all the church's services and celebrations.

Holy Baptism at Grace-St. Luke's

Baptism2014thumb5

Holy Baptism is the Sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the Kingdom of God. Grace-St. Luke's has four regularly scheduled dates for Baptism: Easter Eve, Pentecost, All Saints' or the Sunday thereafter, and the First Sunday after Epiphany. Additional opportunities can be discussed with parish clergy.

Parents and Godparents of the baby or child to be baptized make the commitment to bring them up in the Christian faith. A Baptismal Seminar is usually held the day before the Baptism. Call the church office at least ten days in advance to make arrangements for Baptisms of adults or children.

The next dates for baptisms will be April 15 (Easter Vigil), June 4 (Pentecost), and November 1 (All Saints' Sunday). For more information and to schedule a baptism, contact Connie Johns (connie [at] gracestlukes [dot] org).

You can explore the Sacrament of Holy Baptism in the Book of Common Prayer, pages 298-308.
