Sacraments

The Sacraments “Sacraments are outward and visible signs of inward and spiritual grace” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 857).   Besides baptism and the Eucharist (Holy Communion), the church recognizes other spiritual markers in our journey of faith.

These include:  

Confirmation (the adult affirmation of our baptismal vows), pp. 413-419

Book of Common Prayer Reconciliation of a Penitent (private confession), pp. 447-452

Book of Common Prayer Matrimony (Christian marriage),  pp. 422-438

Book of Common Prayer Orders (ordination to deacon, priest, or bishop), pp. 510-555

Book of Common Prayer Unction (anointing with oil those who are sick or dying) pp. 453-467

These help us to be a sacramental people, seeing God always at work around us.  For more information you are invited to call the church office at 603 622-8632.
