The Episcopal Church usually schedules baptisms on four appointed dates of the church year: on the Feast of the Baptism of Jesus in January, at the Easter Vigil, on the Day of Pentecost, and on All Saints Sunday which, this year, fell on Sunday November 4. The Rev. Dr. William Lupfer, Rector of Trinity Church Wall Street, baptized a total of sixteen persons, including two adults, during two of the morning worship services at St. Paul’s Chapel. Assisting him were Mother Kristin Kaulbach Miles, the Rev. Winnie Varghese, and the Rev. Alfred Loua.
Here are a few photos from what are always joyous occasions.
