Baptisms Weddings and Funerals
Grace and St Stephen’s is dedicated to enriching the lives of our community. Members and non-members alike will find opportunities to be supported throughout their lives and in their walk with Christ.
In the Episcopal Church, baptism is the rite of full initiation as a member of the Body of Christ and into the life of the church. This momentous event represents a wealth of meanings, from being born anew, to living in Christ’s love and service. Those who sponsor a child for baptism or those adults who are baptized make life-changing and life-giving promises to God.
Baptism is always celebrated at a Sunday Eucharist, during one of the five Baptismal feasts:
- The First Sunday after Epiphany: The Baptism of Christ (January)
- The Great Vigil of Easter (March or April)
- The Day of Pentecost (May or June)
- The Feast of St. Stephen (observed) (the last Sunday in August)
- All Saints Sunday (First Sunday in November)
