Infants, children and adults are ordinarily baptized during Sunday Mass so the entire community can participate in the celebration.

Baptism sacramentally initiates one’s spiritual life in Christian community. The waters of baptism symbolically “birth” us into the waiting arms of a receptive and nurturing church—the communal Body of Christ. In and through this sacrament we receive and welcome infants, children and newcomers into the family. We make commitments to one another, commitments of love, compassion, and presence with the intention of serving others as we work together for the highest good of all.
While we welcome everyone to the Eucharistic table, we also encourage parents of older children who have not been baptized and/or have not yet received their first communion to consider the tradition of preparing children for these sacraments. Please contact Pastor Toni if you are interested.


First Communion

Aria and Emma receive their first communion.

Eucharist celebrates our oneness in and with the Cosmic Christ.  It re-unites the human family when it feels broken and invites us to re-experience the divinity within each person, and within all of us together as one family.  When we gather at Christ’s table we re-member ourselves as the people of God and re-commit to honoring the divinity within each and all.
At Sophia Christi we welcome everyone to the table of Christ, believing Jesus would do the same.  This is Christ’s table, not ours.


The voice of conscience can sometimes be a troubling task-master urging us to alter course or change our hearts, mend our ways, or correct our attitudes. There are a multitude of cultural and social norms, as well as our own needs for security, affection, control and pleasure, that influence how we think, feel and decide.  At times we find ourselves stuck in patterns we recognize as contrary to our values.  At other times we want more accountability in our effort to become less self-centered or more responsive to the legitimate needs of others. The sacrament of Reconciliation offers a place and a time to look more deeply at both our motives and our aspirations while being held in the arms of an unconditionally loving God.
The sacrament of Reconciliation is not the same as counseling, nor is it spiritual direction.  The focus is conscience—the voice of God within—and how you respond to its directives.  Sometimes the challenge lies in stripping away the cultural or religious thought-patterns that mimic and conceal the authentic voice of conscience.  Sometimes it’s a matter of holding oneself accountable to that voice and learning to partner with God in the process.   It is a sacrament of hope and healing, meant to assist in letting go and moving on, feeling encouraged and supported on the journey.

Anointing of the Sick


Anyone experiencing a health crisis may request the sacrament of anointing. In most cases they choose to be anointed during the Liturgy with community participation.

Illness enters our lives in a variety of forms—physically, mentally, emotionally and even spiritually.  In those times we especially need the care and compassion of others, the support and companionship of family and friends. Through the sacrament of Anointing the church community embraces the one who is sick and enfolds them in the healing energy of the Body of Christ.  Ordinarily Anointing happens within the Liturgy, so the entire community can participate in offering prayers for the one in need of healing.  At other times, Anointing may occur in hospital or in one’s own home by contacting the pastor.  




We celebrate the love and commitment of all couples and offer wedding preparation and services for both same-sex and heterosexual couples.
