This service provides parents the opportunity to dedicate themselves, before witnesses present, to the ethical raising of their child. One or two friends or relatives may be asked to serve as ‘sponsors’ or ‘mentors’ for the child. This follows a practice that one finds in most traditions and is a comforting and reassuring ritual that publicly expresses your commitment to the best possible upbringing of your child.
I will meet with you to help you create the ceremony that best fits your thoughts and feelings. To this end, I can provide you with some sample ceremonies and components thereof to make the process as easy as possible for you.
