Holy Baptism

Being baptized means that you are a full member of the church. If you have been baptized with water in any Christian denomination in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, you were marked as Christ's own forever and are a member in God's church.


You can be baptized as an infant, youth, or adult and we will promise as a congregation to help you seek God throughout your life and mature in your faith.


To prepare for your Baptism or your child’s Baptism, submit this form, and then contact the clergy of St. Richard's at (512) 255-5436 or daybyday@saintrichards.org.

Confirmation

Confirmation is a "mature affirmation" of one's commitment to Christ. Confirmation must be completed by the bishop and thus occurs only once a year. To prepare for confirmation, confirmands attend classes to learn about the practices of the Episcopal Church and to grow in faith with fellow Christians.

If you're interested in being confirmed, please contact the clergy of St. Richard's. 

Marriage

Jesus’ first miracle occurs at a wedding feast in Cana. Christian marriage centers on mutual joy and lifelong commitment and marks a great celebration within a couple’s life. Couples preparing for marriage meet with clergy for premarital preparation.

Funerals

In the Episcopal tradition, we believe in the resurrection and the promise of life everlasting. At death, life is changed, not ended. As we walk this journey of life together as a faith community, we experience the death of loved ones. Although Christians are people of joy and hope, grief is not in any way unchristian. Jesus himself wept when his friend, Lazarus, died. The support of a Christian community can make all the difference when you are going through times of loss. The family and clergy come together to plan a funeral service, during which the deceased is commended to God’s eternal care.
