In baptism, we become a new creation, born into the life of the church and commissioned to be Christ’s body in the world. At St. John’s, we continue the Anglican tradition of baptizing infants and young children, and also adults, who come to the Christian faith later in life. If you are thinking about baptism for yourself or your child, there is a time of preparation where members of the Church gather over food, fellowship, discussion, prayer and instruction. Baptism at St. John’s is celebrated on Sunday mornings at the 10am service (usually on the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus in January, the Second Sunday of Easter, and the Sunday closest to Holy Cross in September) where everyone in the congregation vows to support and uphold the newly baptized in the life of Christ. Please contact Canon Catherine at [email protected] or at (613) 283-1261 for more information and to arrange a time to meet to discuss baptism.
