Sacraments and Special Services

Our Book of Common Prayer teaches that sacraments are "outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace, given by Christ as sure and certain means by which we receive that grace." The two great sacraments of the gospel are Holy Eucharist and Holy Baptism. We also recognize other sacramental rites, including confirmation, ordination, holy matrimony, reconciliation of a penitent and unction (anointing) of the sick and dying.

Holy Eucharist is the sacrament commanded by Jesus for the continual remembrance of his life, death and resurrection, until his coming again. We celebrate Holy Eucharist (also known as the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion) every Sunday. All are welcome to receive Communion.
