Several years ago, I was asked by Old North Abbey to create a unique baptismal certificate that could be duplicated as needed for their growing congregation. Each new print I embellished with gold ink details and the name of the baptismal candidate, birth date, and date of baptism. Late in 2017 the priest at ONA passed my contact info along to the priest of St. Thomas Anglican Church in Georgia, and--using the same general template yet adding the parents' names--I created a certificate for STAC. The priest and godparents get to sign their own names at the bottom of the page. Eventually, I think we will change the verse shown here to something more suitable for adult baptisms, but in this case the first four candidates were children.

The rector at St. Thomas posted these in our clergy facebook group, and everyone is going a little crazy over them! I just sent your info to another parish as well. The red is so striking... such beautiful work as always!
