If you are interested in baptizing your child once our schedule resumes, please contact Pastor Kevin below.

Baptism

We welcome infants and children who will be raised by families of faith into the church through the sacrament of baptism.

Traditionally, we baptize on four days: Easter (Spring), Pentecost (Summer), All Saints (Fall), and Baptism of Our Lord (Winter). Due to COVID precautions, we are scheduling special afternoon baptism services. Our next baptism service will be held on Pentecost on May 23rd at 4pm. All families who wish to baptize their child(ren) are asked to complete an application. 

If you have questions or want to learn more, please contact Children’s Pastor Kevin Sheehan at kevin@churchrez.org
