I am new to the Parish. What do I do first?
Provide Your Information
Fill out a St. Peter's Information Form (PDF or Online! ) if you are new to the parish or want to transfer membership, and return to Amber Bell (email@example.com, ext. 106) or drop off at the Parish Office.
Determine Your Situation
If you would like to become a member, please take a moment to determine which of the following best describes your current situation:
If you have not been baptized...
In keeping with the tradition of the Anglican church, both adults and infant children are baptized. Baptisms take place at Sunday services on the Day of Pentecost (May/June), the Sunday after All Saints' Day (November), the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord (First Sunday after the Epiphany, January), or at the Great Vigil of Easter (March/April).
Because it is the rite of initiation into the community of faith, Holy Baptism is not administered privately at St. Peter's. Fill out St. Peter's Baptism Form (PDF) and contact Anne Wright firstname.lastname@example.org or at 850.701.0664 ext. 105 to arrange the sacrament for yourself or your child.
If you have a baptized child...
As a baptized Christian, a child may become a baptized member of St. Peter's Anglican Church by transferring the letter of baptism from his/her previous church.
If you are baptized but not confirmed...
Persons interested in becoming a confirmed Anglican should plan to attend our catechumenal process. The three part process includes Alpha or Simply Christian, Introducing Anglicanism, and Network, culminating in confirmation by the bishop. Contact Amber Bell (email@example.com, 850.701.0664 ext. 106) for more information.
If you are a baptized and confirmed...
"Communicants" are baptized and confirmed Anglicans. If you were previously confirmed in an Anglican church (such as the Episcopal Church USA) and would like to request a letter of transfer, contact Amber Bell (firstname.lastname@example.org, 850.701.0664 ext. 106) for more information. The catechumenal process is strongly recommended.
If you are Orthodox or Roman Catholic...
Persons coming from the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches who are interested in joining the Anglican church should plan to attend our catechumenal process, which will prepare you for reception by the bishop. Contact Amber Bell (email@example.com, 850.701.0664 ext. 106) for more information.
