Baptism, the sacred rite of passage where a small human—or sometimes a grown adult—is ceremoniously dunked in holy water, like a divine Oreo in a celestial glass of milk. Whether you’re Catholic, Protestant, or just a spectator at these holy water galas, you know that baptism is a momentous occasion. It signifies rebirth, spiritual cleansing, and most importantly, gives everyone a chance to see Baby John or Aunt Karen with their hair all wet, looking like a drowned rat for Jesus.

Now, you might think, “Baptism is serious business! No room for jokes here, mister!” But oh, how wrong you are. Baptism Jokes are like the cheeky younger sibling who always knows when to lighten the mood. After all, when you’re dealing with a ceremony that involves an adult trying to hold a squirming baby like a live grenade over a pool of water, there’s bound to be room for some humor. From jokes about the holy water turning to wine (“Little Timmy’s first miracle!”) to wisecracks about how the baby screamed so loud, even the Devil heard it and changed his ways—Baptism Jokes bring an extra sprinkle of levity to an already splashy occasion.

The young son of a Baptist minister was in church one morning when he saw for the first time the rite of baptism by immersion. He was greatly interested in it, and the next morning proceeded to baptize his three cats in the bathtub.
The first kitten bore it very well, and so did the other young cat, but the old family cat rebelled. It struggled with him, clawed and tore him, and got away.
With considerable effort he caught it again and proceeded with the ceremony. But she acted worse than ever, clawed at him, spit, and scratched his hands and face.
Finally, after barely getting her splattered with water, he dropped her on the floor in disgust and said: “Fine, be an Atheist.”

Two American men are touring Europe, and are scheduled to arrive in France Sunday afternoon. However, they arrived several hours early, and had little to do on Sunday morning while everything was closed.
“Well,” one says to the other, pointing to a nearby Cathedral, “why don’t we attend Mass?”
“Sure,” replies his friend. “But we don’t know how the French pray and we can’t speak French!”
The first guy thinks of a solution. “We’ll pick a guy in front of us, and whatever he does, we’ll do.”
His friend agrees. They enter the church, sit close to the front, and choose a guy.
Fifteen minutes pass, and their plan is working well. Thirty minutes, no issues.
By the time forty-five minutes pass, they’ve gotten used to the routine. Suddenly, while everyone is seated, the priest says something in French and the gentleman they chose stands up. Without thinking, the two Americans stand up as well.
The church bursts into hard laughter.
Realizing that no one else is standing up, the two American men leave in embarrassment. They wait for the Mass to end, and then approach the priest, who spoke English.
“We’re well-meaning people- we don’t speak French and just chose some guy to imitate while praying,” one says.
The priest chuckles. “Ah. You’re probably wondering why everyone laughed at you.”
“Yes,” replied the other American.
“Well, you see, I announced the Baptism of a child… and asked for the father of the child to stand up.”
