Weddings, Baptisms and Funerals
One of the most wonderful joys in life is coming together with another person, knowing God has brought you together. Other than the decision to be a follower of Jesus Christ, there is no other decision that is more significant.
We want to do everything that we can to help you prepare for this important celebration.
We look forward to meeting with you to help plan a wedding that will be both beautiful and an act of worship. We also look forward to helping you prepare for life after the wedding, with all of the joys and challenges that it will bring.
At least one member of the couple must be an active member or active participant in the life of Good Samaritan. Allowance will be made for those who may be active in other congregations but who, for geographical or family reasons, desire to be married here. The Parish Wedding Coordinator will be assigned to your wedding to assist both clergy and the wedding party. She prepares the church and chapel and coordinates the ceremony.
Holy Baptism is the initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body – the Church. We baptize those who come to God in faith in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. When children come to baptism, they are included in the faith of their family and the parent profess the family's faith in which the child will grow and develop.
In the Episcopal Church, Baptism is the entry rite into the Christian life. Baptism is the only requirement for joining in the Holy Eucharist and all other ministries of the Church.
Funerals and the Churchyard
Funerals are normally arranged with a funeral director who is then responsible for getting in touch with the church to organize the details. Again, if you have any questions, please contact the office 610-644-4040, email@example.com.
