Baptisms of Infants/Small Childrenare celebrated on designated Sundayseach quarter (or other times for pastoral reason). Our expectation is that the family has joined the parish, attending faithfully for at least three months.
Baptism of Adults/Youthis celebrated on Holy Saturday night each year and, for pastoral reason, at other times. Adults/Youth are prepared for Baptism with preparation for Confirmation.
Confirmation of Youth (15 years+)(15 years+) is celebrated in late Spring at the Cathedral. Classes (22 weeks) in Youth Center, 9 am, Sundays. Call first.
Reconciliation of a Penitent(individual confession) – by appointment with a priest. Anglican practice is: “All may, none must, some should” confess sins individually to a priest. General Confession is usually part of Sunday worship, and receiving the Eucharist is the normal pathway to forgiveness.
Healing of the Sickis celebrated in St. Luke’s Chapel after all Sunday services. Our priests and Lay Visitors will visit the hospital as well as the homebound.
Marriageis a Sacramental Rite witnessed by a priest or deacon, who provides preparation classes. A minimum of three months’notice is expected. Contact our clergy OR our Wedding Coordinator.
Holy Orders (Priest/Deacon)Candidates are invited/sponsored into theprocess of ordination by parish leadership, rather than self-selected. Exercising committed lay ministry is the logical first step.
God of all hearing,
God of all loving,
God all enfolding.
Above the winds, hear me.
On lonely isle, love me.
In dark night, enfold me.
