Blessing your child with a Baptism or Christening can be done anywhere that you and your family wish to celebrate. A gathering of loving well wishers is a powerful beginning and all that is needed to start your child on a new path with the Divine.
If you have chosen Godparents, they are encouraged to attend. This is their opportunity to show their love and support and to publicly recognize the presence of that Divine spark within your child.
Your child will not be dunked in a pool of water. Instead a drop of Holy Water or Holy Oil will be placed on the forehead. Your child will be prayed over and proclaimed Baptized and Blessed!
The same service can be performed with your pre-teen as it is with an infant, with one exception...the preteen will be asked the questions directly if he/she is 12 years old or older. This is known as a Confirmation ceremony.
Adopted children can also receive this blessing.
At Blessings All Around, we celebrate all stages of your life.
Celebrating an adoption with a welcoming ceremony, the reverence of a baby's christenings, weddings, or house blessings;
We want to help you celebrate and create new traditions.

Some families are looking for a special addition to, or an alternative to a Baptism/Christening ceremony due to religious or cultural inclusion/exclusions.
This is an event where parents publicly welcome their children into the world and give them well wishes and blessings. Compared to a Baptism or Christening, this ceremony is more festive and can be held on any day of the week at any time. The child can be either a newborn or a teenager. Adopted children can benefit from this service as well. You have lovingly chosen to make them apart of your family and give them your name; Here is a way to celebrate publicly.
There aren't any rules as to how many people you can invite to a Welcoming Ceremony or Baby Blessing. You can have a smaller event with just family and close friends, or have a large ceremony. The best idea is to invite friends and family who have a high respect for your belief system and how you think.
Congratulations on the new home!
Choosing to do a house clearing and blessing for your new home or apartment is the perfect idea when you are not the original owners/occupants.
A blessing is perfect for:
Clear your house of negative energy before a baby is brought home
