Hello,

I'm wondering how the order of baptisms (and chrismations and first communion) of infants are done in the Orthodox Church? Do they all occur on the same day? Or on separate days? Do practices differ between the various jurisdictions?

Baptism and chrismation are always done together.  My godson's baptism was the day before his first Communion, however.

We had 5 of our 6 baptised and Chrismated on the same day, a Saturday.  They received communion the following day during DL.  When number 7 was born, it was done the same way again.

I seem to remember having the baptism, crismation and communion all at the same time. well, one after another, in that order, but at the same ceremony.  Then the next day they came back for the second communion, and the next week for the third.

This isn't strictly adherent to the original question as I was baptized as an adult, but my baptism was done on a Saturday evening, and my chrismation and first communion on Sunday morning. Technically, since we Orthodox start our days at sundown, they were performed on the same day, but by American custom, they were not.
