“You have become a new creation, and have clothed yourself in Christ.

See in this white garment the outward sign of our Christian dignity. With your family and friends to help you by word and example, bring that dignity unstained into the everlasting life of heaven.”

Each time someone receives the sacrament of Baptism here at Saint John Neumann they are presented with a handmade Baptismal garment. These lovely garments are prepared and sewn by members of our parish community.

If you would like to participate in creating these garments please contact Patty Bartnick at (703) 860-6151 or
