Congratulations on your wonderful new baby!

It is always a joy to be a part of such a special time in the life of a family. A baby is a gift of hope and promise, a continuation of the power of Life, expressed in the new little face you hold before you.


Now is a great time to share your happiness and to celebrate your joyous new addition to the family. Having a ceremony that is written expressly for your child allows the hopes and dreams you have for their future to be expressed in a beautiful, natural way. Surrounded by those who mean the most to you, the ceremony takes on a profoundly tender intimacy, touching you and your loved ones very deeply.

 

As with any other ceremony of major significance in your life, the more personal elements you include, the richer will be the experience for yourselves and for your guests. Whenever possible, be sure to incorporate anything that is important to you and your family for it will create an even more touching and memorable celebration. The beauty of a ceremony written specifically for your child is that it becomes a reflection of your love for them while also providing a heartwarming way for your guests to express their love for you and your little one.

Contact Rev. Barbara Lodge to learn how extraordinary your baby’s christening, baptism or baby blessing can be when it is a true expression of love given and love received. Experience the special tenderness that happens when a touching and personal ceremony welcomes your baby into the world with love and celebration.

Christenings and Baptisms


 

People often ask about the difference between a Christening and a Baptism. Traditionally the Baptism signified a spiritual rebirth while a Christening was a Baptism that could also include a naming of the child and/or a dedication of the child to the service of God and the Christian faith. In modern times, however, the terms have become synonymous and the ceremonies performed are generally the same. Elements of both types of ceremonies have blended into what we now think of as a Christening or a Baptism and the more modern variations will often allow for the inclusion of personal aspects that are important to you.

 

 

 


 

 

Baby Blessing Ceremonies
 

Baby Blessings are very popular for those who prefer a more secular approach and can include whatever you have in mind. From readings, songs, welcoming sentiments expressed by families and friends, even elements of Christenings and Baptisms, this ceremony celebrates your baby in any way that suits you best.
