The Baptism of Our Lord

12 Jan 2014 | 09:30 am - 10:40 am

The First Sunday after Epiphany is traditionally marked as the Baptism of Our Lord. It is the day in which the church remembers Jesus’ baptism in the River Jordan.   In the yearly retelling of Jesus’ life, it is the shift from the Christmas story to Jesus’ adult ministry.

 The Baptism of Our Lord also allows us to reflect on the meaning of baptism. In particular, the day allows us to reflect on the sacred gifts and benefits offered at baptism. At Lake of the Isles, this will also be an opportunity to invite back all the families who celebrated a baptism in the past year. They will be presented with a medallion imprinted with their child’s name and their baptismal date to serve as a reminder of their connection to Lake of the Isles and their more important relationship as a child of God.
