As Practiced by Different
The Roman Catholic Church clearly states that it recognizes as valid all baptisms “conferred with water and with a formula which clearly indicates that baptism is done in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” (DAPNe n.93, see also Canon 849). All Christians are incorporated into a life in Christ and into his Church through Baptism. Because of this, Baptism creates a bond of unity between all Christians.
•Learn how Christians are related in baptism even when their churches are still separated.
• Tour Eastern Orthodox and Protestant churches to explore baptismal traditions and celebrate how our common baptism in Christ unites us.
• Discover how family and friends can witness to and support inter-church parents and their newly baptized child.
