Baptism

In the Episcopal Church we baptize both children and adults.  If you are an adult seeking baptism, we offer periodic inquirers' classes.  Please contact our priest, Fr. Eric, for more information.

If you have recently had a child, congratulations!  A big step for the new child is the sacrament of Baptism.  We would love to talk with you about baptizing your child.  Here is some general information go get started.

Baptism is generally administered on specific dates: Easter Vigil, Pentecost (50 days after Easter), All Saints (First Sunday in November), and the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus (Sunday after January 6). If necessary and for good reason, other dates may be available, but, in no case except for an emergency, is baptism administered during Lent. All baptisms are public and done in the context of a communion service. A family presenting a child for baptism must themselves be active communicant members in good standing of St. Philip’s. Pre-baptismal instruction to parents and godparents (sponsors) is required and is arranged when scheduling the baptism.

If you are interested in becoming baptized or baptizing your child please contact Fr. Eric by email or call the church office at (248) 651-6188.

To request a baptism for your child, please download and fill out the Baptism Information Form.
