Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body, the Church. It is a public statement of one’s intentional decision to follow the way of Jesus. In the case of infant baptism, it is the parents’ declaration of their intent to raise a child in the way of Jesus. The bond which God establishes in Baptism is indissoluble, so baptism is only administered once. While it is common in the Episcopal tradition to baptize infants, baptism is available to people of any age.

In the Episcopal Church, Baptism is considered to be full and complete initiation into the Body of Christ. Therefore, once someone is baptized, they are eligible to receive Holy Communion. Historically in the Episcopal Church, children could not receive communion until they were confirmed, but our theology of Baptism has evolved to understand that it is not a partial entry rite, but a full and complete entry rite. Nevertheless, some parents prefer to wait until their child is old enough to complete the First (Formal) Communion Program.

Quinceañera is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to adolescence. The Quinceañera begins with a Thanksgiving Eucharist at the church. At Church of the Messiah we are proud to be able to celebrate the many cultural rites of passage and Sacraments of the church as prescribed by the Catechism of the Episcopal Church. These include a blessing ceremony for the “Quinceañera.” Let us help with yours.

The funeral liturgy is primarily an act of worship. Indeed, “the liturgy of the dead is an Easter liturgy.” As Christians, we live in the real and certain hope that nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christnothing in life; nothing in death. Still, one of the hardest things we face in this life is the death of a loved one. The clergy, staff and people of Church of the Messiah offer their caring support and expertise to individuals and families through those first difficult days.

Please fill out the funeral planning booklet and call (714) 204-0565 to  schedule a meeting with a priest.
