Baptisms

Main content start

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, when in-person gatherings are permitted. 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.

Those interested in Catholic Baptism at Memorial Church, should view information at the Catholic Community at Stanford website.
