How do I ?

The Sacraments and Ministry of the Church are available to you. The clergy of St Luke's would be honoured to respond to your pastoral need. 

Become Baptized

20170412-Palm-Sunday-0019-1200x800

Baptism is the universal ritual of initiation into the fellowship of followers of Jesus Christ known as the Church. Christians, whether adults or infants, are baptized with water in the name of the Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Baptism is one of the two holy acts mandated by Jesus—the other is the sacred meal known as the Eucharist.

While people are baptized as individuals, they are baptized into a community of faith that promises to persevere in resisting evil, forgive one another as God has forgiven them, seek and serve Christ in all persons, strive for justice and peace among all people, strive to safeguard the integrity of God’s creation and renew the life of the Earth. Parents bringing children for baptism make a commitment to nurturing them in the faith and life of the Christian community.

Get married

20170214-church2-0019-1200x800

Blessings and congratulations to you. A wedding is a happy occasion to celebrate with family and friends. It is also a spiritual occasion and it is a Sacrament of the Church.

The best way to explore a wedding at St Luke's is by contacting the parish office and arranging to meet with our parish priest well in advance of your proposed wedding date. He will be happy to explain the process and to discuss your hopes for your special day.

In the Diocese of Toronto weddings are performed in the church. Under special circumstances, alternate settings may be possible. At least one of the couple to be married must have received the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.

Receive Ministry to the Sick

2017-01-12-church-0165-1200x800

Various Ministries of Healing are available in the Sacraments, rites, and ministry of the Church. These have been traditionally known as Ministry to the Sick. They include:

  • Communion for shut-ins and those in hospital
  • Healing Ministry - Anointing, Confession and Absolution, Laying on of Hands
  • plus other relevant pastoral ministries and pastoral visits

St Luke's also has a Team of Lay Visitors and Eucharistic Ministers who assist in meeting pastoral needs. You may also arrange to meet with our parish priest for any personal or pastoral matter.

Arrange a funeral

Christians believe that the end of this life on earth is the beginning of a new life in Christ. Anglican funerals balance the grief of the living with a celebration of the life of the deceased and faith in the hope of the resurrection. If your loved one is approaching death or has died, the clergy of St Luke's would be honoured to walk with you and support you in this difficult time.

There prayer books offer various forms of services that provide opportunities for family and friends to participate.The parish priest and family together arrange the service structure. The prayer books assume the presence of the body or ashes at the funeral. Services may also be at the graveside or in a funeral home. A memorial service may also be requested.
