The sacrament of Baptism, historically a Christian rite of initiation, is available at Memorial Church for children and adults twice per academic year during the Fall and Spring Quarters. It is offered during University Public Worship and is not a private ritual or ceremony. More than a momentary act in one’s life, Baptism is also considered a beginning to a lifelong spiritual pilgrimage.

Fall: Sunday, September 26, 2021 & Sunday, November 28th, 2021

Spring: Sunday, May 15th, 2022
