Life Events

In this section, you’ll find information about special services:

Baptism: In Christianity, baptism is the ritual act by which a person is admitted as a member of the Church.

Weddings: Christian marriage celebrates the union of a couple in the context of their relationship with Christ and the whole Christian family.

Same-sex marriage: A number of churches in the Diocese of Toronto offer same-sex marriages or the blessing of same-sex relationships.

Funerals: Anglican funerals try to balance the grief of the living with a celebration of the life of the deceased, and faith in the hope of the resurrection.

Other special services

There are many other ceremonies and services available for personal celebrations, such as the blessing of a new home or the renewal of wedding vows. For details, speak to your parish priest.
