Church of Georgia readies its 59th mass baptism of infants

The Patriarchate of Georgia is readying its 59th mass baptism, part of an ongoing initiative by the Orthodox Church in the country to assist efforts to combat a low birth rate.

The first mass baptism of infants was held back in January 2008, with the Catholicos-Patriarch of the Georgian Orthodox Church, His Holiness and Beatitude Ilia II, promising to baptize every third child that a Georgian family brings into the world.

So far, the Catholicos-Patriarch has baptized more than 38,500 infants.
