Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which we are embraced by God as members of Christ's Body, the Church. Baptism is a time of joy and may occur at any age.
The most significant step you can take on the road to a deeper and transformed life in Christ is to be baptized with water in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
By Baptism, we are joined to Christ in his death and resurrection and made full members of his body, the Church. At baptism, we make promises about how we will live our lives as followers of Jesus. God promises us forgiveness of our sins and new life in the Holy Spirit, and welcomes us into full communion with Christ and his Church.
We baptize children and adults. Most baptisms involve small children, with their parents and godparents making promises on their behalf. However, every year, we are also delighted to be able to baptize a number of adults.
If you (or your child) are ready for baptism, we encourage you to begin a conversation, and to join us regularly in worship.
Consult with the Priest for available dates of Baptism and additional information. Read More about Episcopal Baptism.

A wedding celebrates Christian marriage and seeks God's blessing on a couple's life together. A Christian marriage implies a belief that faith will play an important role in your relationship. Couples are prepared through a series of conversations with the clergy to explore the Christian understanding of marriage and to plan the service. Contact the Priest for further information.

Planning a Funeral
The Christian faith comforts us with the belief that not even death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. Upon the death of a loved one, please be in touch with the clergy as soon as possible.
As Christians we believe that those who die are gathered to God and ushered into new life through Christ. The burial rites of the Church provide an opportunity for friends and family to acknowledge faith and hope in the midst of loss, and to commend those we love to God's never-failing care.
Please contact the clergy at or near the time of death so that the priest may come to the home or hospital to visit and pray with those who are bereaved. If death is not sudden or unexpected, we hope the family will have been in touch with the clergy prior to death
