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

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 dates for baptisms are the following Sundays: the Baptism of our Lord, the Easter Vigil, Pentecost, and All Saints' Sunday. For more information and to schedule a baptism, contact Chapman Morrow (cmorrow [at] gracestlukes [dot] org).

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