As St. John the Baptist, Jordan river, so too do we celebrate baptism as a sacred rite in the Episcopal Church.It is a joyous covenant realized by full initiation of water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble. In the Episcopal Church, anyone who has been baptized is welcome to take Communion.

Holy Baptism is administered within the Eucharist as the chief service on a Sunday or other feast day, but not during the Lenten season. Each candidate for baptism may be sponsored by one or more baptized persons. Sponsors of adults and older children endorse their candidate’s intention and promise to support them in their Christian life through prayer and example. Adults wishing to be baptized undertake a course of instruction and spiritual preparation leading to baptism.
