Baptism is a sign of new life in Christ. It marks an individual's formal entry into the Christian family, which is the Church.
Candidates and their families will attend worship regularly at St. James and support the church financially. Thus, we recommend you begin attending Sunday services before approaching the clergy about baptism.
Baptisms take place during the main 10:30 am Sunday service. These are typically scheduled around feast days or other holy days in the church year, at the discretion of the Rector.
Candidates for baptism or their parents, in case of infants, will meet with the Rector to reflect on the meaning of baptism and the responsibilities of the newly-baptized as members of the church.
