Baptismal Classes

Sunday, October 18 and 25, 9:00 to 9:45 a.m.
"Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ's body, the Church. The bond which God
establishes at Baptism is indissoluble." Church tradition expressed in these words of the Book of Common Prayer affirm that Holy Baptism is appropriate at the Easter Vigil, on the Day of Pentecost, on All Saint's Day or the Sunday after All Saint's Day, as well as the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord. It is the whole Body of Christ that comes together in celebration of this sacrament for prayer, dedication, and re-affirmation of our commitment to the Lord of life, Jesus Christ. The Baptism classes will take place in Room 302, with a baptism run-through on October 28. If you are interested in becoming baptized, please connect with a member of the clergy or email Kathy Noe.

About Christian Formation

What is traditionally called religious education, or even Sunday School, is known as Christian Formation at the cathedral. This is not just some branding effort to be different or unique. Instead, it reflects an approach to how we believe we may best grow as Christians.

Being a Christian is not only an intellectual pursuit, but also -- and deeply - a matter of the heart and spirit. When we open ourselves up to the concept of formation, a formation directed by the hand of God, we move into our true callings as human persons. The act of formation becomes transformation. And in that, we learn what it truly means to be Christian. Our classes reflect this understanding.

The Christian Formation committee is chaired by Susan West.
