“Holy Baptism,” according to The Book of Common Prayer, “is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church.”

Holy Baptism is most often administered as part of the celebration of Holy Eucharist at a major Sunday service or on a feast day. In the Episcopal Church, baptismal services are generally conducted:

  • at the Easter Vigil (the night before Easter)
  • on the day of Pentecost (the eighth Sunday after Easter)
  • on All Saint’s Day (November 1) or the Sunday immediately following All Saint’s Day
  • and at the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord (the first Sunday after the Epiphany on January 6)
You are sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism, and marked as Christ’s own, forever…
The Book of Common Prayer, page 308
