Life Passages with Holy Cross
Holy Cross is blessed to share in the rite of baptism for people (infants and adults) who want to mark the beginning of their relationship with God as a member of the church. Dates for baptisms can be easily arranged, and at least one meeting with the pastor is required before the baptism can take place.
Affirmation of Baptism
The church used to call this rite "Confirmation", however the name has been changed over the years to reflect the focus on the candidate and their preparation to take afresh the responsibility for their own faith journey.
Weddings are a sacred moment between two people witnessed by their family and friends. It is a real honour for Holy Cross and our pastor to be involved in helping a couple publicly declare their love for each other and start their new life as a married couple. Approximately three to four meetings between the couple and our pastor are required to make sure the wedding is a true expression of the love the couple have for each other.
When Holy Cross can help people honour a loved one who has died, Holy Cross is enriched by hearing all that was important to and shaped their life. It is an humbling experience to walk along side of people in the midst of some of the most difficult moments in their life. Holy Cross works to remind people of God's love for them in the midst of this time.
