Holy Baptism and Holy Eucharist (or Holy Communion) are the two great sacraments given by Christ to the Church.
Holy Baptism is available to infants of members and non-members. For Adult Baptism or Reception* we ask individuals to spend some time in discernment, prayer and study with us (usually for a year). *Reception is for those who choose to become official members of the Episcopal Church, but who were baptized in another denomination.
Weddings are celebrated at St. Paul's in the tradition of our Christian sacrament (the Episcopal Church offers the sacrament of marriage to same-sex couples). We also work with inter-faith couples to design services that respect the spirituality of each respective tradition.
Confirmation is "adult" affirmation of our baptismal vows, which is discerned by prayer and study with St. Paul's. (Young Adults pursue study following graduation from Sunday School. Baptized adults who wish to be confirmed usually study with us for a year).
Funerals are observed at St. Paul's for members of the parish and non-members alike. Our 170 year old cemetery is located on our grounds. Niches are also available in our columbarium as a way to carry on the tradition of St. Paul's as a final resting place.
