Baptism at St. John the Evangelist

Dear Parents,

Congratulations! You are in the midst of that wonderful and sacred mystery that is parenthood.  It’s fun, exhausting, exhilarating, frustrating, and joyful.  And all at the same time!

As you think about the baptism of your child, know that we’re here to help make it happen.  It doesn’t matter whether you are an Episcopalian or even a regular churchgoer.  God desires the baptism of your child, and that’s all that matters.

By seeking to have your child baptized, you have recognized that there is something deeper in this life than what exists on the surface.  There is a divine presence among us, something greater than ourselves.  Baptism is a wonderful first step in deepening our awareness of that divine presence and nourishing it in our children.  For baptism is all about our relationship to God and to others. 

St. John’s is a vibrant spiritual community, a place of welcome and spiritual nurture for children and adults. Whether you and your family choose to join us on this journey of faith now or in the future, we are thankful to be sharing in this special moment in your lives. The door is always open. Our primary concern at this point is to assist you with the baptism of your child. Through it, your child will be marked as Christ’s own forever. And this is something in which we can all rejoice.

This is an exciting time for you. Enjoy it!
