Holy Baptism

Holy Baptism is the initiation rite by which one embraces the Christian way and becomes a member of Christ’s body, the Church. Baptism is celebrated throughout the year on special Sundays. To arrange Baptism for yourself or your child, please contact a member of the clergy.

Funeral & Burial

A death in the family should be reported to the clergy as soon as possible. We will assist promptly with arrangements for a funeral or memorial service. For recommendations for a local funeral director or to make arrangements for interment in the Churchyard, please contact the parish administrator.

Healing Rite

If you are admitted to the hospital please inform the parish office so that one of our clergy may visit you for the laying on of hands and anointing with oil.  Prayer and anointing  is also offered at our 10:00 am, Thursday Morning service . You may of course arrange to meet with a priest at any time.

Communion for the sick or home-bound

Clergy or parishioners specially licensed for the ministry of Lay Eucharistic Visitor are available for pastoral visits to the hospital or your home.

Confession

During worship each Sunday we join in saying the confession and receiving absolution. If you feel burdened by guilt, grievance or sin and would like to make a personal confession with a priest, please contact a member of the clergy.
