There is some happiness amid all the sad news this week. Kensington Palace has announced the date on which Prince Louis, the 3rd child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, will be baptized.

“Prince Louis, the third child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, is to be baptised on 9 July, Kensington Palace has announced.

“The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, will conduct the christening at the Chapel Royal, St James’s Palace, London.

“Louis Arthur Charles – to give him his full name – was born on 23 April.

“The good news for his football-loving dad, Prince William, is that 9 July is one of the rest days in the World Cup.”

The BBC also reports that godparents are yet to be announced. Other details of note: Prince Louis will be wearing the same replica antique gown as his brother and sister wore for their baptisms, and guests will be served a slice of William and Kate’s wedding cake.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
