Holy Baptism

Confirmation

Sacraments are outward and visible signs of

inward and spiritual grace. (Book of Common Prayer, pg. 857)

The Book of Common Prayer states that Holy Baptism is especially appropriate at the Easter Vigil, on the Day of Pentecost, on All Saints' Day and on the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord (the First Sunday after the Epiphany). It is recommended that, as far as possible, Baptisms be reserved for these occasions or when a Bishop is present.

 

If you or someone you know is interested in Baptism, please contact the church office or Vicar. We would be happy to answer any questions, give you a baptism application, set up the instruction class and baptism date.

The Book of Common Prayer states that Confirmation is a mature public affirmation of a person's faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and receiving the laying on of hands by the Bishop. This is the next step in Christian development of those who were baptized at an early age.

If you or someone you know, is interested in Confirmation, please contact the church office or Vicar. We would be happy to answer any questions, give you a confirmation form, set up the instruction class and confirmation date.

Marriage

The Book of Common Prayer states that Marriage is a solemn and public covenant in the presence of God. In the Episcopal Church it is required that one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the ceremony be attested by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage conform to the laws of the State and the canons of the Church.

If you or someone you know is interested in Marriage, please contact the church office or Vicar. Pre-marital counseling is required.
