Home Baptisms

Through the Sacrament of Baptism we are adopted as God’s children and become members of Christ’s body and the Church. If you wish to schedule a baptism, please complete the form below and contact Laura Rose, Events Coordinator, at 703-549-3312 x65. Please note that no baptisms are scheduled during the season of Lent.

Preparing for Baptism

On the Saturday preceding the scheduled baptism, St. Paul’s holds a class led by one of our Baptismal Counselors. These counselors are parents and members of the congregation who meet with all participants in the baptism to explain the logistics of the ceremony, and to help parents and godparents fully understand the significance of their intention to support the child by prayer and example in their Christian life.
