Milestones on the Christian Journey

BAPTISM is the way we become members of the church, the body of Christ. Although many are baptized as infants, baptism is appropriate at any age. Baptism takes place at a main Sunday morning service, with Easter, Pentecost, All Saints, and Baptism of the Lord being especially suitable days. Baptismal candidates make promises to renounce evil and turn to Jesus as Lord. In infant baptism, these promises are made by parents and godparents on behalf of the child. The congregation promises to support the newly baptized in their life of faith. For baptismal preparation, please contact the rector.


FIRST COMMUNION:  In our main Sunday service we celebrate the Eucharist (also called Holy Communion, mass or the Lord’s Supper) We recall that Jesus took bread and wine, blessed them and shared them with his friends, saying “This is my body, this is my blood given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” All baptized Christians, including children, are welcome to share bread and wine at the Lord’s table. Instruction is available for children, teens or adults wishing to receive communion for the first time.

CONFIRMATION:  When young children are baptized, their parents and godparents make promises on their behalf. Sometimes teens or adults wish to affirm their faith for themselves, and then the sacrament of confirmation is appropriate. This involves a period of discussion about some of the basics of Christian faith. Then the bishop will come and will confirm the person in a special service involving the laying on of hands. The opportunity for confirmation arises every year or two and is available for young people around age 12 (and up) as well as adults.

WEDDINGS are joyful occasions in the lives of families, and a church wedding acknowledges that the couple is joined together by the grace of God and that Christian spirituality is part of the marriage. The strength and support of the Christian community, and an active Christian faith, help the couple create a permanent, happy marriage. For more information about weddings at St. Patrick’s, contact the rector.
