Holy Baptism and Confirmation
Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God.
There are several festivals each year that are especially designated as baptismal festivals. They are - All Saints’ Sunday, the Easter Vigil, the Feast of Pentecost and the Baptism of our Lord: the First Sunday after the Epiphany. At each baptism, in addition to pledging our support for the candidates, those who are already baptized renew their own baptismal vows.
The service of Holy Baptism begins on page 299 of the Prayer Book. You may access the Book of Common Prayer at this link.
If you are interested in being baptized or in having your child baptized, please contact a member of the clergy. They welcome the opportunity to talk with you. Click here for the Holy Baptism schedule.
Confirmation is the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop. To learn more about confirmation, please contact Mary Cay Kollmansperger.
Congratulations! When you get engaged, be sure to contact the clergy as soon as possible. Click here for our wedding guidelines, which will help with your planning.
First Communion Instruction
There is no determinant age for admission to the Holy Communion and Holy Baptism is full admission into the Church. Deciding exactly when children begin to receive is a decision best reached by parents and children in consultation with the clergy. Before reception children should receive instruction on appropriate factual information and more importantly on the meaning of the Sacrament. If your child is interested in receiving communion, please speak with the Rev. Bo Millner or the Rev. Michael Cadaret. They are happy to talk with you and your child. Also, the clergy can give you a children’s book which will provide the necessary instruction for you to use at home with your child. When you have finished with the book either Michael or Bo can speak with you and your child again prior to first reception of communion. The season of Lent is a good time to discuss communion with your child so that first reception can happen at Easter.
There are a number of ways to volunteer - as an acolyte, lector, singer, instrumentalist, usher, Altar Guild member and more. Please contact the Rev. Bo Millner to learn more.
