Baptism

Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which we are adopted as a child of God. Through baptism we become members of Christ's body, the Church and inherit of the kingdom of heaven.

Baptism is available to everyone at St. Bart's. We offer baptism on four feast days during the church year - All Saints' Day, the Baptism of Jesus in the Jordan, the Easter Vigil and the feast of Pentecost. Baptisms can also be scheduled during regularly scheduled Sunday worship services throughout the year.

You do not need to be a member of St. Bart's to be baptized here or to have your children baptized. Meetings with one of our clergy can be arranged to prepare you or your children for baptism.

The 2017 dates for baptism are:

  • January 7/8
  • April 15/16 Easter
  • June 3/4 (Pentecost)
  • November 4/5 (All Saints)

To schedule an appointment with clergy to discuss baptism for a member of your family email the church office or call (858) 487-2159.
