Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church, and the time when the Christian community welcomes new members into the Household of God.
Infants, children, and adults are baptized on the following days:
The Baptism of Our Lord; Great Vigil of Easter, Pentecost Sunday, and All Saints Sunday.
All baptisms take place at the 11:00 am Sunday service, with the exception of the Great Vigil of Easter, which is at 8:00 pm on a Saturday. Private baptisms are generally not permitted except in unique pastoral circumstances.
On the day before Baptism, parents and godparents (sponsors) are expected to participate in a two-hour Baptismal preparation led by Cathedral clergy. Parents seeking Baptism for their children must ordinarily be pledging members of the Cathedral who are actively committed to supporting its ministries, worshipping regularly, and participating as deeply as possible in the life of the Cathedral.
