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. 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.

Currently all available baptism spots have been reserved.

Upcoming baptism date: To Be Determined.

Please contact the church office with any questions: StanfordORSL@stanford.edu
