Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God.
The Book of Common Prayer, pg. 858
Baptism initiates people, by water and the Holy Spirit, into the Body of Christ. We baptize both adults and infants. We regard the sacrament of baptism as a Holy Mystery, which means we can understand the meaning of the act without ever fully fathoming the depths of its significance.
The Cathedral of St. Philip joyfully welcomes new members into the Body of our Lord Jesus Christ through the sacrament of Holy Baptism.
Adolescents and adults who desire baptism should contact Lisa McNamara. Instruction is required. Parents who wish to have infants or young children baptized may register by contacting Lisa McNamara as well. Parents must attend a baptismal workshop; godparents (sponsors) are also strongly encouraged to attend.
