Swiss godparents are now receiving special treatment

1 min read

Parents who wish to baptize their children in Switzerland can now choose their own unique approach. CNE News reports that a child can also be baptized on an alpine meadow, in a river, or in a garden.

“Half of the parents would like a more individualized form,” says pastor Mike Gray.

“This is an opportunity to respond to individual wishes,” says minister Sonja Gerber. For example, she baptized Martina and Markus Gibel from Schwarzenburg and had them baptized in the Alps. The parents themselves were baptized, but did not grow up in a Christian environment.

“That’s why we looked for alternatives to the church,” says the family, and that’s how their child was baptized in an alpine meadow.
