Baptismal Catechesis

One Lord, one faith, one baptism

Families may have their newborns baptized at St. Mark's. The parents and sponsors meet with the clergy for instruction prior to the Baptism, and the baptism occurs within the context of public worship. Baptisms are celebrated at the Easter Vigil, the Day of Pentecost, the feast of All Saints, and the Sunday of the Baptism of Christ. Other times may be arranged in consultation with the clergy; however, baptisms are not celebrated during Advent and Lent. Adults and youth who desire to be baptized are encouraged to participate in our Formation Ministries.
