Ceremonies

Trinity Church is a community that strives to support one another through both the joyous and difficult moments of our lives. Below is an overview of ceremonies at Trinity.

Your first step in scheduling a service at Trinity Church is to contact the parish office. Baptisms, Weddings and Quinceañeras may be held, church schedule permitting, at any time of the year except during the season of Lent. In case of a death in the family, contact the rector immediately. Clergy will assist in funeral plans.

Baptism at Trinity

At Trinity we understand that in Baptism an adult or child is formally and permanently bound to the Body of Christ, that is the Church. In part, the Baptismal covenant includes the following questions:

  • Will you continue in the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in the prayers?
  • Will you persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?
  • Will you proclaim by word and example the Good News of God in Christ?
  • Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?
  • Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?

Baptisms at Trinity are done “in community”, meaning that they are held during one of our 4 weekend services. We do not hold private baptisms. Because baptism is the joining of the community of Christ, we ask that the family be in regular attendance at worship services. Baptisms may be held at any time of the year, other than the season of Lent. Parents must meet with the Rector to ensure that there is a deep understanding of the meaning of Baptism for both the child and the family as a whole.

Weddings at Trinity

If you are reading this as a newly engaged person, please accept our congratulations!

The building of Trinity Church is stunning and a perfect place to stand together as a couple and ask for God’s blessing on your life together. As clergy and members of this parish we will do all we can to help you in your preparations for your wedding day.

With that, one of the important aspects of being married at Trinity is that the congregation not only to help you journey to your wedding day, but to be a source of strength and support in your marriage. We take seriously the line in the Marriage Rite which asks those gathered at your wedding, “Will you who witness these vows do all in your power to uphold these two persons in their life together.” The answer is a bold, “We will!” Therefore, if you desire to be married at Trinity, we ask you to make it your parish home first. You will be required to meet with the Rector for 6 sessions of pre-marital counseling.
