Life Events


Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church.

In the waters of baptism, we realize loving inclusion into God’s family, are given God’s own life to share, and are reminded that nothing can separate us from God’s love in Christ. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble.

We would be grateful to celebrate baptism for your family and friends! Email Mike to set a date!


The Celebration and Blessing of Marriage service is a momentous event in the life of any couple, and we at St. Thomas the Apostle want to do everything we can to make it a joyful, memorable and holy event.

We look forward to working with you in the planning of this holy, sacramental ceremony. We pray that God will richly bless you during this time of preparation and over the entire course of your life together.

Words of comfort from The Book of Common Prayer:

The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we too, shall be raised.

The liturgy, therefore, is characterized by joy, in the certainty that “neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

This joy, however, does not make human grief unchristian. The very love we have for each other in Christ brings deep sorrow when we are parted by death. Jesus himself wept at the grave of his friend. So, while we rejoice that one we love has entered into the nearer presence of our Lord, we sorrow in sympathy with those who mourn.

Funeral Policy

Funerals are the privilege of the Church to support and the church strives to be available for the community, members and non-members alike.  The Daughters of the King (DOK) generously donate receptions in Krist Hall by arrangement.  Members are asked to contribute $500 to cover flowers, organist, clean-up, and clergy discretionary donation; non-members are asked to contribute $750, the residual supporting the altar guild and DOK.  To learn more about funerals at St Thomas, please contact Mike at rector@sttaec.org.
