Baptism is the sacrament through which one is received into the Church. Through Baptism we receive the full forgiveness of sins, we “put on Christ”, becoming members of His Body, the Church.
To remind them of their Baptism, Orthodox Christians usually wear throughout life a small Cross, hung round the neck on a chain during their Baptismal Service.
Immediately after Baptism, the Orthodox Christian is “Chrismated” (confirmed) with the Chrism (in Greek “myron”) by the Priest. The Sponsor (or Godparent) of the baptised person must be an Orthodox Christian over the age of 12.
Baptism Service Fee:
The contribution to the Church on the day is $750; it is traditionally paid by the godparent.
Baptism Certificate Fee:
The Baptism Certificate is issued by the priest after the baptism service. The fee for a Baptism Certificate is: $250.
