Holy Baptism

Holy Baptism is full initiation into the Body of Christ. Adult baptism requires preparation and planning on the part of the individual. For infants and children, the responsibility lies with parents and godparents. Services of Holy Baptism take place during one of the regular Sunday morning services about six times a year. A one-hour pre-baptismal class for parents and godparents, with brief service rehearsal, is scheduled prior to baptismal Sundays. Inquiries about Baptism can be directed to the Rector.

Weddings

Holy Matrimony is a life-long union of fidelity, respect and mutual support. In the celebration and blessing of a marriage, a couple makes vows before God in the presence of the Church and receive the grace of God to help them fulfill their promises. A marriage at St. Margaret’s Church usually requires that at least one of the persons to be married to be a member of the parish or be an immediate family member of a parishioner. However, we do welcome all who do not have a current church home to explore a relationship with St. Margaret’s as part of their pre-marital preparation. There are additional guidelines for weddings, some of which are mandated by the canon law of the Episcopal Church. A Wedding Policy Guidelines brochure is available upon request from the parish office.

Healing Prayer

On the first Sunday of the month, parishioners are invited to receive laying on of hands and prayers for healing for body, mind or spirit during both Sunday services. Whether prayers are for yourself or others, we invite you to come forward.

Intercessory Prayer Group

Scripture enjoins us to pray without ceasing, and the faithful members of our Intercessory Prayer Group pray regularly for our parish prayer requests, and for the special needs of our congregation. If you have a confidential prayer request, please complete a Prayer Request Card found in the Narthex.

Funerals and St. Margaret’s Cemetery

Our Christian faith proclaims that not even death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. A burial from St. Margaret’s Church does not require membership. If you wish to learn more about having the funeral of a loved one here, please call the church office.
