Did you know? (Sunday, May 21, 2023)

In many Anglican Churches, a baptismal font can be found at the main entrance of the Church. Placing the baptismal font in this location is symbolic and has a special meaning. It means that just as we have to pass the baptismal font to enter the physical church building, so too must we enter the Christian life, a new life as a part of the Church community, through the waters of baptism. Therefore, when we go to a Church and see the baptismal font at the main entrance, it reminds us of the special moments when people join the church through baptism. Here at SAPC, the baptismal font was in the same location as the belfry. It fell into disrepair, however, and was replaced by a mobile marble font.
