Baptism

Holy Baptism is the sacred means of being cleansed of sins, joining

with Christ, receiving the Holy Spirit for ministry, and becoming a member

of Christ’s body, the church.

 

Baptisms are ordinarily performed in Christ Church during our regular Sunday Service.

 

All religious services remain suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.

If you have an emergency or special circumstances, please contact the church.

Christ Church features lovely indoor and outdoor spaces and is a beautiful setting for a memorable wedding service. Couples interested in being married at Christ Church need to know that the Anglican Church views marriage as a life-long union. The primary requirement for a wedding ceremony is that appropriate premarital instruction takes place. Generally, this means that the couple will meet at least three times with a member of the clergy, either a member of the Christ Church clergy or a member of the clergy at a parish closer to your home.

 

The Church requires that at least one of the couple be a baptized Christian (though not necessarily an Anglican). If either one of the couple has been divorced, at least a full year must have passed since the final decree of divorce. Additionally, the Bishop of Mexico will need to grant final approval for the remarriage, based upon the recommendation of a member of our clergy staff.

 

Normally the order of service used for a wedding ceremony is that in the Book of Common Prayer. Readings, music, service bulletins, and other particulars can be decided in consultation with the clergy of Christ Church.

 

Remember that according to Mexican law the couple must also be married in a civil ceremony. This usually takes place at some time before the church ceremony, although arrangements can be made for the civil ceremony to take place on the grounds of Christ Church but outside of the church itself immediately after the wedding.

 

Please speak with the Parish Secretary for more information.

Funerals

Funeral and memorial services are based on the order called The Burial Office, found in the Book of Common Prayer. A note in the prayerbook explains that “The liturgy for the dead is an Easter liturgy. It finds all its meaning in the resurrection. Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we, too, shall be raised.” In light of this, every funeral or memorial service is a celebration of Life, and the choice of music and readings, while acknowledging our human grief and loss, also point us to the hope and joy of the resurrection. Any who wish to plan in advance their own funeral or that of a loved one are invited to call the parish clergy.

Due to the ever-evolving situation, for up-to-date information, please contact

the church office (55 5202 0949), Mother Susan (sdennen712@hotmail.com),

or Padre Germán (tierra_del_angel@hotmail.com).
