Baptism

Baptism is the sign of new life in Jesus Christ. In Christianity, baptism is the act that that admits a person as a member of the Church. People can be baptized at any age, from infant to adult. Parents bringing their children to be baptized make a commitment to nurture them in the faith and life of the Christian community.

At St. George’s, Baptism takes place during one of our Sunday worship services.

Confirmation

When making a major decision for your future, whether it be job related or returning to school, this sacrament is available to mark (confirm) the decision.  Confirmation services are performed by the Bishop.

Weddings

In a Christian celebration of marriage, a couple is joined together in the context of their relationship with Christ and the whole community. To be married in an Anglican church, one of you needs to be baptized. Our priest will be happy to talk about this with you.

LGBTQ2S+ couples and previously divorced individuals are welcome to be married at St. George’s.

Funerals

Christians believe that the end of this earthly life marks the beginning of a  new life in Christ. Anglican funerals try to balance our sorrow with a celebration of life, and faith in the hope of the resurrection.

We would be honoured to support you in this difficult time.

Please get in touch with the church office to learn more about any of these special services at St. George’s.
