Cathedral International rejoices with you on the birth of your child. Children are a heritage from the Lord and we believe baby dedication is a solemn and serious undertaking. As a Christian Church, we have a biblical mandate to adhere to set forth in the Holy Scriptures regarding childbirth and marriage.
Therefore our policy is as follows:
Children are dedicated on the 2nd Sunday of the month
- 9:30 AM worship service in Perth Amboy
- 9:30 AM worship service in Asbury Park
- 9:00 AM worship service in Plainfield.
All parents and godparents of the child are required to attend a Pre-Christening class. This Pre-Christening class is held the 2nd Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM in the Donald Hilliard Jr. Community Affairs Complex, 205 Smith Street, Perth Amboy, NJ. Godparents or parent that cannot attend Pre-Christening class due to living out of state or work schedule can be excused from the class. The parent(s) of the child will be instructed to explain their responsibilities. Please let the instructor of the class aware of the parent or godparent that has not attended class.
The parents of the child will receive a baby dedication certificate signed by the senior pastor or officiant that will christen the child and a special gift.
Age is not a factor when dedicating your child. Parents have rededicated their children at the beginning of their teen-age years, Sweet 16 or five years old. It is never too late to dedication your child to the Lord.
Private dedications are available upon request with Church Administrator 732-585-4001 or email@example.com.
