What's Happening


June 4, 2021, Detroit, Michigan – For Christians, Baptism is the most basic of all sacraments, and many of us were baptized as infants before we knew the significance of the ritual. But what does Baptism really mean for our daily lives?

Sister Janet Schaeffler, OP

Adrian Dominican Sister Janet Schaeffler, OP, explores this question and more in her latest book, FAQs on Baptism: Questions and Answers on How and Why We Celebrate. She further explores the symbols, actions, and prayers involved in Baptism and describes it as a call to discipleship – not merely the entrance into the Christian church.

A retreat leader and a consultant for catechists and adult faith formation leaders, Sister Janet also once served as Director of Adult Faith Formation for the Archdiocese of Detroit. She is a recipient the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) Distinguished Service Award.

Sister Janet has written numerous books and resources for catechists, including Spirituality for Catechists and The Creed: A Catechist’s Guide. She also writes annual Advent reflection booklets.

FAQs on Baptism can be purchased through Twenty-Third Publications or ordered through the Weber Center Shop of Weber Retreat and Conference Center, 517-266-4035 or webershop@adriandominicans.org.
