Baby Blessings, Baptisms, Christenings, Naming & Welcoming Ceremonies

Dear Parents,

Congratulations on the birth of your baby! Whether this is your first, second, third or fourth baby I am sure you have discovered, the birth of a baby is truly a miracle!

A baby ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate your baby’s safe arrival into the world in a formal way. It’s also the perfect opportunity for friends and relatives to greet this new member of the family with love and affection. And, for you as parents as well as for the God parents & grand parents to state your/their commitment to your child’s welfare.

I will help you figure out which type of baby ceremony works best for you: a baby blessing ceremony, baby baptism, baby christening or baby welcoming ceremony! Whether you prefer a spiritual, interfaith, religious Christian, non-religious, secular or humanistic ceremony, I will offer you many choices from amazing ideas and samples. I will personally work with you to help you identify the type of baby ceremony most fitting for you in accordance with your philosophical, spiritual or religious beliefs.


The following are just a few great ideas:

  • Have a book in which everyone present can write a message for the child to read when they are older.
  • Plant a tree in honor of your baby.
  • Honor other family members: grandparents, aunts, uncles siblings or friends by asking them to read a poem, participate in a candle lighting ceremony, and/or add a few words, give a toast, or do a reading.

Your Baby’s Ceremony.

A baby Christening/Baptism/Blessing Ceremony is a joyous occasion and an opportunity to formally welcome and express the importance of your baby’s birth into the world with your community of family and friends!

What it is To Be a Child?

Know you what it is to be a child? It is to have a spirit yet streaming from the waters of baptism; it is to believe in love, to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in your ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, – for each child has a fairy god-mother in his/her own soul. Francis Thompson:

  • “To See Heaven in a Wildflower”
  • To see the World in a grain of sand,
  • And a heaven in a wild flower,
  • Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
  • And eternity in an hour.
  • William Blake
