The Sacrament Of Holy Baptism

Posted: 10/28/2013

All Saints' Sunday, November 3

As most everyone is aware, we celebrate Holy Baptism four times each year at Holy Comforter:  at the Great Vigil of Easter on Holy Saturday evening;  on the Feast of Pentecost, our parish birthday and the celebration of the gift of the Holy Spirit;  on the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord in early January when we commemorate Jesus' baptism at the hands of his cousin John in the Jordan River;  and on All Saints' Sunday, the first Sunday in November, when we remember and rejoice in our identity as God's holy and beloved children.  Each occasion has a unique quality and a unique connection to Holy Baptism; and all are poignant and powerful.

Our next celebration of Baptism will occur at the 9:00 Eucharist on Sunday, November 3.  If you are interested in having a child baptized, or desire baptism for yourself, please contact the Rector at jlparkin@holycomforter.org or at 847/251-6120, ext. 115.   The next baptismal feast will be Sunday, January 12, 2014.
