Christenings / Baptisms 

During a Christening your child will be baptized with water. Itís the start of an amazing journey of faith for your child and a special day for all your friends and family. It is a response to God's love - a desire and a commitment to respond to God's call to follow the example of Jesus Christ. It is also a celebration, a time to come together with family and friends; remembering that your child is loved by God, is part of a wider community and has a place with God's people.

If you are mature enough to make your own decisions and you've decided you'd like to be baptized, you'll have a service that is designed for adults. You may have been going to church for a while and want to make a more definite commitment in terms of your Christian faith.  For adults and young people, baptism usually takes place shortly before, or at the same time, as confirmation. Confirmation is the service when those who have previously been baptized affirm those promises and are specially prayed for by a Bishop.

A funeral service in church?

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. Family and friends come together to express grief, give thanks for the life lived and commend the person into God's keeping. These can be a small, quiet ceremony or a large occasion in a packed church.

Everyone is entitled to either a funeral service by the parish priest at St Markís, regardless of whether or not you, or the deceased person, attended church.
