40 Day Baby Churching
On the fortieth day after birth, the mother and child are invited for a prayer service to reunite the mother and unite the child to the church. This practice is based on the ancient Jewish rite and was experienced by Jesus and His mother Mary (recorded in Luke 2:22-40). This way the new mother has had the time to recover from giving birth and is able to peacefully bond with her newborn, who’s immunity is also strengthening in its first weeks of life.
To schedule on or around the fortieth day please call or email the church office.
