Baptism Officiants in Trenton, ON
I have lived in Belleville for most of my life and love the beauty of the Quinte area and the friendliness of the community. Given the privilege of being a participant in the commitment ceremony of Baptism between two loving individuals is a humbling and fulfilling experience. I am very active with a local organization that fund raises and organizes sports activities for disabled youth and adult athletes in the Quinte area. I feel that I am a joyful, warm, comforting and understanding individual who will endeavour to ensure that the wedding ceremony initiates an eternally memorable imprint in the relationship of the familie's life journey together.
Welcome to the exciting world of being a parent! Parenting is a wonderful, joyous journey. Naming your child is the first step in your journey.

Stan will guide you through your chosen ceremony which is as unique as you and your child. Raising a son and daughter, and the grandfather of five girls has given Stan the experience you can draw from, and the sense of humor and patience making your ceremony memorable. Stan’s easy going personality makes him approachable and adaptable to any unexpected situation. Stan’s number one parenting law is Love, Love, Love, and Love them some more.

Not being of a religious background, we were not sure how to welcome our son Liam into the spiritual world. Your ceremony and readings fit our family perfectly. The memories will live in our hearts forever. The naming ceremony helped to solidify the amazing extended family our son Liam has. We were very lucky to have found your service. Many thanks for making Liam's day so special.Iggy Greenwoos& Liam Scott
