Baptism at Christ Church

Baptism is the rite of initiation into the Christian community, what St. Paul calls "the body of Christ."  Baptism may happen at any age, whether infant, child, youth, or adult.  We welcome all inquirers to speak to us about this important step of incorporation into the life of the Church.

Baptisms are always celebrated in the context of our Sunday worship, mostly on the principal feast days of the Christian year.  The dates for the 2018-2019 program year are:

  • November 4, 2018 (All Saints' Sunday)
  • January 13, 2019 (Feast of the Baptism of our Lord)
  • April 20, 2019 (Easter Vigil at 8 p.m. - usually for older children or adults)
  • April 28, 2019
  • June 9, 2019 (Day of Pentecost)

We sometimes also schedule an extra baptism date in the summer.

If you are interested in baptism, please contact the Rev. Michael Hodges at least four weeks prior to your preferred date.  Please fill out this Baptism Inquiry Form and either e-mail it to Mary Ann Lennon at the Glebe House or mail it to her at 25 Central St., Andover, MA 01810.  Someone will be in touch with you about next steps.  For more information about baptism preparation, click here.
