Information About Cathedral Baptisms
Baptism (Christening) is how we become part of the Christian Church – the body of Jesus Christ. It is an ancient initiation ceremony, which can be traced back to John the Baptist who was baptising in the River Jordan. Those who came to him did so to show that they were committed to the Kingdom of God, that is that they wanted to live as God calls us. Jesus was baptised by John and this marked the beginning of his ministry. Christians, those who seek to shape their lives on Jesus Christ, have been baptised since.
