Baptism: Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. Baptisms and baptism consultations are welcome! Please contact Rev. Edwin.
Eucharist/Communion: The Holy Eucharist is the principal act of Christian worship, instituted at the Last Supper when Christ commanded his disciples to “do this” in remembrance of him. Christ’s presence is truly known in the Holy Sacrament and his presence is also truly known in the gathered eucharistic community. The Eucharist, or “Thanksgiving”, is the central Christian remembrance of Christ’s life, death and resurrection. All baptized Christians are invited to partake.
Confirmation: In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an early age are expected, when they are ready, to make a mature public affirmation of their faith and to receive the laying on of hands by the bishop. Those baptized as adults (unless baptized with the laying on of hands by a bishop) are also expected to make a public affirmation of their faith in the presence of a bishop and to receive the laying on of hands. Confirmation classes and consultations are available on request.
Pledging: Pledges are commitments to supporting the parish community, typically of money, time, skills or resources. Showing regular, pledged support is a simple and practical way to be involved at St. Mary’s and to take ownership of our life together. You can download a pledge card and return it to Rev. Edwin or fill it out online. You can set up recurring gifts here.
