Naming ceremonies are the first of the rite of passage ceremonies in a child’s life. It is the families opportunity to avow their commitment to the child. Parents declare their love and recognition of the sacred nature of their role and siblings indicate their welcome of the new addition in their midst. Guardians have the opportunity to avow their understanding of their special role.

I will meet with you to plan the ceremony and will support this process with emails and telephone calls.

A Naming Certificate will be provided.

There are other options which vary in cost according to complexity. Included in such packages will be commemorative candles, blessing books etc.
