What is Baptism? Baptism represents the beginning of a new life in Christ and unites Christ with his people. At the time of baptism, we (or our sponsors on our behalf) make a life-long commitment to follow the path of Jesus Christ. Our baptism marks our formal entry as a member of the church, and any baptized person can receive receive Holy Eucharist.
Congratulations on your engagement! Weddings are joyful occasions for the parish community. “Marriage is a gift of God and a means of grace, in which man and woman become one flesh. It is God’s purpose that, as husband and wife give themselves to each other in love, they shall grow together and be united in that love.” (BAS – pg 541)
What is confirmation? Confirmation marks the moment in your Christian journey where you affirm as an adult the faith into which you have been baptized and your personal decision to live a life of discipleship to Christ. This affirmation is confirmed through prayer and the laying on of hands during your confirmation service.
A funeral is used to mark the end of a person’s life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God’s keeping. At St John’s, we wish to support you at this time of bereavement. Arrange a funeral by contacting the church office or click here to learn more.
