The people are to be admonished, that it is most convenient that Baptism should not be administered but upon Sundays and other Holy Days, or Prayer Days. Nevertheless (if necessity so require) Baptism may be administered upon any other day.

There shall be for every Male Child to be baptized, when they can be had, two Godfathers and one Godmother; and for every Female, one Godfather and two Godmothers; and Parents shall be adinitted as Sponsors, if it be desired.

When there are Children to be baptized, the Parents or Sponsors shall give knowledge thereof, before the beginning of Morning Prayer, to the Minister. And then the Godfathers and Godmothers, and the People with the Children, must be ready at the Font, either immediately after the last Lesson at Morning Prayer, orelse immediately after the last Lesson at Evening Prayér,< as the Minister by his discretion shall appoint. And the Minister coming to the Font (which is then to be filled with pure Water) and standing there shall say,

Hath this Child been already baptized, or no?

it' they answer No; then shall the Minister proceed, as followeth :

DEARLY beloved, forasmuch as ceive him, O Lord, as thou hast all men are conceived and born promised by thy well-beloved Son, in sin; and our Saviour Christ saying, Ask, and ye shall have; saith, None can enter into the king-seek, and ye shall find; knock, and dom of God, except he be regene-it shall be opened unto you: So rate and born anew of Water and give now unto us who ask; let us of the Holy Ghost; I beseech you who seek, find; open the gate unto to call upon God the Father, us who knock; that this Infant through our Lord Jesus Christ, may enjoy the everlasting benedic that of his bounteous mercy, he tion of thy heavenly washing, and will grant to this Child that which may come to the eternal kingdom her by nature he cannot have; that he which thou hast promised by Christ may be baptized with Water and our Lord. Amen. the Holy Ghost, and received into Christ's holy Church, and be made a living member of the same.
