Through Baptism we welcome you into Christ's Body the Church.
Anyone who wants to join the Episcopal Church is welcome to be baptized at St. John's. We celebrate baptism approximately five times per year during the Rite II service on Sunday morning or during the Easter Vigil. Baptisms generally occur in January, at the Easter Vigil, in May, July and the first Sunday in November. The dates change yearly based on the liturgical calendar.
Here are the dates for 2019:
January 13 | 10am service
April 20 | 8pm Easter Vigil service
June 9 | 930am service
July 28 | 930am service
November 3 | 10am service
There is also a rehearsal that takes place between the 8am and 10am Sunday service, around 9am.
If you or a family member wish to be baptized, please contact our office at 603-436-8283, or download the baptism form (below), fill it out and return to the office prior to the date you will participate in.
