Life in Christ
The sacrament of Baptism is one of two sacraments modeled for us by Jesus himself. At Saint Barnabas, Holy Baptism is offered for adults, children, and infants. We understand Baptism to be an affirmation of our relationship with God and the worshipping community, and we invite you to be a part of our worshipping community to better enable you, or your child, to experience fully the love of Christ.
Baptism is offered several times a year during our worship services. Private baptisms are no longer offered as the Episcopal Church has come to understand this Sacrament as one to always be celebrated in and amongst the gathered community of faith so that the whole body can collectively commit itself to upholding new Christians in their life of faith. Below, you can inquire about baptismal dates and a priest will be in touch further about baptismal preparation, which is required of all candidates and/or their sponsors. Please contact the Rev. Nick Roosevelt for more information.
