Baptisms, Weddings, Funerals and the Columbarium

Holy Baptism

Holy Baptism is initiation into the Body of Christ. Adult Baptism requires preparation and planning on the part of the individual; for infants and children, the responsibility lies with parents and godparents. Services of Holy Baptism take place during one of the regular Sunday morning services at periodic times of the year. Clergy meet with parents for Baptism preparation for the 45 minutes preceding the service. For further information on Baptisms, please complete this form and call the Parish Administrator at (718) 624-1850, x 10.

Confirmation

Confirmation classes are offered each year, and confirmations take place at the Cathedral of the Incarnation in Garden City each May. For further information, contact the clergy by calling the Parish Office at (718) 624-1850, x 10.

Weddings

Holy Matrimony is a life-long union of respect, mutual support and fidelity. In the celebration and blessing of a marriage, the couple make their vows before God and receive the grace of God to help them fulfill their promises. Grace Church is happy to support marriage equality for all.

There are guidelines for weddings, some of which are mandated by the canonical law of the Episcopal Church. please contact the Parish Administrator at (718) 624-1850, x 10 about planning a wedding at Grace.

Funerals

Our Christian faith proclaims that not even death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus. A funeral or memorial service from Grace Church does not require membership.

The Columbarium

Created in 2001, the Grace Church Columbarium is located at the easternmost corners of the nave, where the cremains of many beloved parishioners and neighbors have been laid to rest. Family members and friends may generally visit the columbarium for quiet reflection whenever the church is open.

If you wish to speak to a member of the clergy about holding the funeral of a loved one here, or for more information about the Grace Church Columbarium, please call the Parish Administrator at (718) 624-1850, x 10 to set up an appointment.

Grace encourages advance planning as a way to ease the distress that inevitably follows a loss. Please see our Advance Planning booklet.
