BAPTISM OF CHILDREN
Through the sacrament of baptism, the child to be baptized will be adopted into the church of Christ, the people of God. He or she will be sprinkled with holy water, anointed with oil, dressed with a white cloth, and thereby spiritually born again as a child of God. Parents can ask for the sacrament of baptism for their children. The celebration of baptism for little children can take place individually in our church throughout the year. Here you will find an application form that you can use to inform us of your wishes.
Once we have received a completed form, one of the priests will contact you to discuss the preparations and further arrangements. In case the parents would like to celebrate a baptism in the Krijtberg with their own priest, this needs to be arranged well ahead of time with the rector or with his replacement.
