The 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.
Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God.
If you want to be baptized, or want your children to be baptized, please speak with the Rector or Priest in charge. Persons may be baptized at any age. Baptism is normally celebrated as part of the regular service on four specific days during the Church year: the Easter Vigil, Pentecost, All Saints' Day (November 1) or the Sunday following it, and the first Sunday after the Epiphany (January 6).
The Holy Eucharist is the sacrament commanded by Christ for the continual remembrance of his life, death, and resurrection, until his coming again.
All baptized Christians, regardless of age, are welcome to take Communion. Children can take communion at any age; the decision is left up to the parents and child regarding the appropriate age at which to begin. Additionally, parents may bring their children to the communion rail and indicate to the Priest to give the child a blessing instead of the actual Communion.
Confirmation is the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.
Holy Matrimony is Christian marriage, in which the woman and man enter into a life-long union, make their vows before God and the Church, and receive the grace and blessing of God to help them fulfill their vows.
Due to the large number of requests from couples wishing to be married at All Saints, our policy is that only those who regularly worship and contribute to the life of the parish may be married here.
Reconciliation of a Penitent, or Penance, is the rite in which those who repent of their sins may confess them to God in the presence of a priest, and receive the assurance of pardon and the grace of absolution.
Unction of the Sick
Unction is the rite of anointing the sick with oil, or the laying on of hands, by which God's grace is given for the healing of spirit, mind, and body.
