Orthodox Christening at Holy Transfiguration

Orthodox Christening at Holy Transfiguration Serbian Monastery in Campbellville, Ontario

The drive to Holy Transfiguration Serbian Monastery in Campbellville, Ontario was just breath taking. I had no idea how beautiful the drive is down Conservation Rd in Cambellville.

Holy Transformation Serbian Monastery is neslted in amongst the beautiful tall trees. The service was intimate, with close friends and family in attendance.

A child is baptized so that he or she may enter into the community of God.

In a Serbian orthodox baptism the first act begins in the narthex (entrance) of the church. This is to show that the child being baptized is not yet a member of the Church.

The priest then calls upon the sponsor to renounce the devil and all his works for the child.

The renouncing of Satan is done facing the west. This is because the west is where the sun disappears. The priest then faces east. Where the light of the sun rises and asks the godparent to accept for the child Him who is the Light of the World.

During the service there is a Procession. The procession is a circle that has a beginning with no end. The godparents and child follow the Priest around the baptismal font.

The child is also anointed with oil and cleansed in the baptismal font.

The priest also makes the sign of the cross on the child’s body through out the service. Here are some photographs of the beautiful service.
