Adult Baptism at the Great Vigil of Easter

Before midnight on Easter Sunday in Memorial Church, the Reverend Dr. Wendel W. Meyer baptizes the fifth candidate to receive the baptism during the Great Vigil of Easter. In this profession of Christian faith, the candidate repents of his sins and promises to follow Christ and to depend on the grace of God to fight sin both within himself and in the world.
