Learn more about Holy Baptism

Baptism at Otey Memorial Parish

Please contact the church office to arrange a meeting with the rector.

From the Book of Common Prayer:

 

"Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into
Christ's Body the Church. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble. . . .

Each candidate for Holy Baptism is to be sponsored by one or more baptized persons.

Sponsors of adults and older children present their candidates and
thereby signify their endorsement of the candidates and their intention to support them by prayer and example in their Christian life. Sponsors of infants, commonly called godparents, present their candidates, make promises in their own names, and also take vows on behalf of their candidates."

These important celebrations of Christian initiation normally take place on special Sundays during the year.  Preparation for the sacrament takes place in advance, please contact Rob Lamborn at oteyparishrector@gmail.com for more information.
