Naming Ceremonies

A naming ceremony is a joyous occasion, full of hope and promise

It provides an opportunity to celebrate the safe arrival of a new life into our world. The new baby is introduced by name to his/her extended family and friends.


Godparents or guardians may be appointed to make a commitment to have a special role in this new life and the significant role of grandparents may be acknowledged.

Welcoming a child into a family, a community and the world with ritual, special words and music acknowledges their safe place in the web of supportive and loving relationships.
