Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals

Baptisms of adults and children take place during the Sunday Eucharist. Parents and sponsors (Godparents) receive instruction in the Christian faith.

Adults who have not received instruction in the Christian faith and adults who have not received Christian baptism with water in “the Name of the Father and of the Son and the Holy Spirit,” are involved with preparation course for adults.

We welcome those who wish to be married at St. Ann’s Church. We require 1 month’s notice prior to a wedding, and at least one of the parties must be a baptized Christian. Premarital counseling is required by the canons of the Episcopal Church.

Christian burial is a service of blessing for the deceased and of thanksgiving to God for that person’s life. As Christians, we believe that death marks not the end of life, but a new beginning as we move from earthly life to a greater Life with God. A Christian is properly buried or cremated from the Church. The Rector and other persons are available for consultation and pastoral care.
