Baptism

Baptisms are heartfelt celebrations that bring together family, friends, and God to shape a life with love, affection, and spiritual leadership. The baptism officiants and ministers with Reverend by Request take pride in providing beautiful and joyous baptism services in Chicagoland and surrounding areas.


Child Baptism

Celebrate Your Gift From Above.

We’re here to make this event as easy and convenient as possible for you.

We will work together while you let us know what you’ve envisioned for the Baptism, and we will find the right words and elements that respect your wishes as well as the “Rite of Baptism”. We can hold the Baptism wherever you feel the most comfortable. No elements of your traditions or beliefs will be left out.

The Baptism shall be recognized before God, with all the hopes and dreams that you have for your child. Few things bring greater joy to our hearts or a smile to our faces then praying for, and blessing a child through a Baptism.

Your child will receive a Baptismal Candle that will be used during the ceremony and a beautiful signed and sealed Baptismal Certificate that you can have framed or add to their Memory Book. The Baptismal Certificate can be used later in their lives to prove that they were Baptized.

We do ask that you provide a small table with a white table cloth over it and a white hand towel for the ceremony. We also ask that you have the child dressed in White. The White Garment represents the purity of Christ.

For the Baptism we will supply the a Baptismal Font that will be filled with water that the Minister will say a Sacred Blessing to ask God to transform it into Holy Water. We will also supply a pitcher to pour the Holy Water from, and the Chrism Oil to anoint your child.

Baptisms can also be performed for more than one child at a time. Occasionally, time has gotten away from parents due to our hectic lives; and having a child Baptized may have slipped down on the priority list. For this and many other reasons, parents may decide to have their children Baptized together. No matter what the reason is, we would be very happy to assist. The main objective is to have your children Baptized to cleanse them from Original Sin.

*Please Note:The Fee for an infant Baptismal ceremony in Chicago, Illinois is $350. This fee is for one person; if you would like us to Baptize anyone additional, the fee would increase only by $50 for each. Everyone being Baptized would receive their own Baptismal Candle to keep and a signed and sealed Baptismal Certificate.


Adult Baptism

Baptisms are not just for infants.

Sometimes, people find their way to belief when they are older. We enjoy ministering at these kind of heart-touching, reverent events; helping individuals commit their life to God through a Baptism.

We can discuss what has brought you to this point in your life, what is expected of you and what you can expect from this celebration of your renewed spiritual life. Let’s work together to find the right words, to express what is in your heart along with the “Rite of Baptism”.

You will receive a Baptismal Candle that will be used during the ceremony and a beautiful Baptismal Certificate that you can have framed or add to your Memory Book. The Baptismal Certificate can be used to prove that you have been Baptized later in your life.

We do ask that you provide a small table with a white table cloth over it and a white hand towel for the ceremony.

For the Baptism, we will supply a Baptismal Font that will be filled with water that the Minister will say a Sacred Blessing to ask God to transform it into Holy Water. We will also supply a pitcher to pour the Holy Water from, and the Chrism Oil to annoint you.

If you are a Parent, a Grandparent, a Godparent to be, or any other family member of a child that is being Baptized by us, and you wish to also be Baptized; we would be more than happy to include you in the ceremony.
