Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ’s body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God. Baptism has been a foundation for the Christian life since Christianity first began and it has been a pivotal event in the lives of families and individuals at St. John the Divine for over 75 years.

Baptisms are conducted at Sunday worship services on or new the feast days of Easter, Pentecost, All Saint's Day, and the feast of the Baptism of our Lord (the first Sunday after Epiphany). In addition to these Sunday services, we also will offer special baptism services on five Saturdays during the year.

Additionally, baptism classes will be offered several times in 2016 to help families prepare for this special day. These nine baptismal dates will give all families and individuals a broad choice of services to plan in advance a day that will best fit their schedules. 

  • Baptism classes will be held on Sundays at 10:00 am in Room 210.
  • Saturday Baptisms will be held in the chapel in the morning, except the April 15 Easter Vigil.
  • Sunday Baptisms will be at the 11:00 am Church / HLC service.
