In Reply to: Baptism @ Easter? posted by Maree on December 25, 2000 at 23:04:21:
: I am planning to change demoninations as such from Roman Catholicism to Orthodoxy. I know in the RC tradition infants & adults are baptised @ Easter - especially adults who wish to convert etc.
: I am particularly interested to find out whether Greek Orthodox also baptise easter day - as the 15 of April 2001 is symbolic for a number of reasons, one, both "easters" fall on the same day which also happens to be my birthday.
: Please advise!
As far as I know baptism can be carried out on any day during the year as nothing should be allowed to stand in the way of this very important first Sacrament. I haven't come across any information in regards to Easter day as being a special day for baptism (for Orthodoxy). I think RC and Orthodoxy may differ on this. But I don't see why you should not be allowed to be christened on Easter day if you wish. It's best to ask an Orthodox priest about this. And welcome to our Church!
