Weekly Prayer List

Pastoral Care

This Ministry at the Parish of Lloydtown uses the combined services of our clergy and members to provide pastoral care to our members who are not able to attend our weekly services and church events. The Ministry team makes visits to the homes, residences, retirement or assisted living communities and hospitals to share information about our church activities, administer communion, read the scriptures, pray, share in the ministry of healing and listen to our members who are shut-in or ill. The Ministry shares God’s love with those who suffer in mind, body and spirit.

Baptism

In Christianity, the sacrament of baptism is a ritual act of initiation; when we are baptized, we become full members of our church community. As such, baptisms are conducted as part of our Sunday celebration of the Eucharist. Baptism is our response to a loving and graceful God; a God who seeks to be in relationship with us. We make promises to follow Jesus Christ and in our prayers, we invite the Holy Spirit to guide and shape our lives and our lives together as Christians.

Confirmation

Confirmation is another sacrament in the life of the church. It is a public declaration that you renew your commitment as a follower of Jesus. The bishop presides at services of Confirmation. The bishop lays hands upon the candidate and prays for God’s grace to uphold the candidate in the life, faith, and mission of the church. For people who were baptised as infants or as young children, being confirmed means that you accept for yourself the promises made for you at your baptism by your parents and sponsors/godparents. In this sense, it is similar to the renewal of baptismal vows.

Weddings

Congratulations. Preparing for your wedding is an exciting time in one’s life.

Christian marriage is a solemn and public covenant between two adults made in the presence of God. In the Anglican Church it is required that one, at least, of the parties must be a baptized Christian; that the ceremony be attested to by at least two witnesses; and that the marriage conform to the laws of the Province and the canons of this Church. If either of you has not been baptized, this can be arranged prior to the wedding.

St. Mary Magdalene’s and Christ Church are beautiful locations for your wedding.

Funerals

There are many prayers and rites that can take place at the time of death and in the days that follow.  These prayers remind us of God’s abiding love for us and helps us acknowledge our loss.  There can be prayers near or at the time of death, at one’s home or in the hospital.  There can be prayers at the visitation, which might occur at a funeral home or at the church.  There is the funeral liturgy itself, and this can take place at the church or at the funeral home.  And then there are the committal prayers, which may happen at the gravesite or final resting place for the ashes.

In the midst of critical illness and at the time of death, our clergy and pastoral staff are available to lead some or all of these rites with you and your loved ones.
