Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into the Body of Christ, the Church.

At St. Timothy’s, Holy Baptism is traditionally celebrated four times during the year. These are The Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord (January), The Great Vigil of Easter, The Day of Pentecost, and All Saints’ Day (November). Candidates (or their parents and godparents) attend a preparation class and rehearsal prior to the baptism.

Other dates may be discussed with the clergy for pastoral considerations. Persons of any age may be baptized, provided they or their families have an existing relationship with Saint Timothy’s.
