Baptisms welcome individuals into the church and are an opportunity to give thanks for the gift of a child. At Saint Michael’s we welcome anyone considering baptism for their child, and we also perform adult baptisms when needed. We will help you prepare for the baptism and to select a suitable date and time that will work for your family and friends. To arrange a baptism, please call us at 250-479-0540.
We are always happy to help couples as they make plans for their marriage. Saint Michael's is a beautiful old country church with an superb organ and an excellent organist. The church seats 140 and yet is comfortable with 30 attendees or less. Working together, we can help you develop the sort of ceremony that you want and make this special moment personal and beautiful for couples and their families. The clergy will help you design a wedding that expresses your love and the love in which you are held. Please call us at 250-479-0540.
When a life ends, those left behind encounter a mixture of emotions. Grieving friends and relatives may feel a terrible sense of loss, emptiness and pain. On the other hand they want to remember all that was good, great, fun and a blessing in the life of their loved one, now deceased. At Saint Michael's we offer the beauty of a memorable funeral service which combines both aspects of grieving, meets your family’s needs, and evokes wonderful memories of the one you have lost. While most funeral services are conducted within the church, we can also help you with a service in another facility if required.
In Saint Michael’s cemetery, plots are available for the burial of ashes. There is also a memorial garden where ashes may be scattered. Funeral and burial arrangements are made with the Rector. Please call us at 250-479-0540.
House Blessings & Home Visits
God is present in the most ordinary of places. If you have newly arrived in the area and are settling into your new home, you might like to have it blessed and pray, along with family, friends and clergy, that God will make it a peaceful and holy place.
Some people cannot come to a church for any number of reasons. We send out pastoral care visitors, both clergy and specially trained church members, to be alongside you in the times when you need the support of people of faith. Communion at home, blessings and prayers for the sick, are all available for you. Call us at 250-479-0540.
