We at St. Matthew’s take our baptismal covenant seriously - we firmly believe in the importance of this sacrament in the lives of families and individuals. We offer this sacrament to our current congregation members and their immediate family. What does that mean for you? It means that, if you have been attending St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church regularly for at least four months and are actively involved in giving of your time, talent and treasure, then you or your family member would be eligible for baptism at St. Matthew’s.
The intent of this policy is to keep and uphold the sanctity of the promises made by our congregation during the liturgy, which asks the entire congregation to make solemn promises to the newly baptized and their family to uphold and sustain them on their Christian journey. The Baptism Liturgy for the Episcopal Church is contained in our Book of Common Prayer.
If you are interested in discussing baptism and what that means in your life, please contact Fr. Dominic in our office at firstname.lastname@example.org
St. Matthew's offers Baptism at least five times a year. Traditionally these
are the Feast of the Holy Name, the Easter Vigil , The Day of Pentecost,
All Saints Day, and often on the Feast of St. Matthew.
