Baptism en Mass

Mercer 5382

LAPL Photo Collection

A woman wearing a white baptismal gown is led from the ocean by witnesses in bathing suits after her baptism in the surf next to the Municipal Pier in Long Beach.

Abel Salas takes us to a downtown LA church where hundreds of infants are baptized every weekend.
The photo depicts another mass baptism...in the Pacific Ocean circa 1930.
