big Life events
The Chaplain is here to serve everyone within this parish, and that includes supporting people seeking a Christian ceremony to mark some of the most important moments in their lives. The Chaplain is committed to the pastoral and spiritual care of all, irrespective of church affiliation, whether you have a religious belief or none.
We invite you to celebrate your marriage in St Paul’s. The Chaplain will officiate at this solemn and joyful event as you begin your life together, with the option of beautiful music.
Please note that Monaco law requires a civil service before the church ceremony. Simply contact the Chaplain to discuss your wedding.
Baptism & Confirmation
A Baptism (also known as a Christening) is a public declaration of faith, usually made on behalf of an infant by adult sponsors (or godparents). However, people of any age can profess their faith in Jesus Christ through Baptism, which is performed by the Chaplain. This ceremony is also an official welcome into the church family, often taking place during a Sunday service of Holy Communion.
Confirmation is the chance to state for yourself the promises made on your behalf when you were an infant. Anyone over the age of 11 can ask to be confirmed, which happens during a special service and is performed by a Bishop. There is a structured course to explore church traditions and what it means to be a Christian in the 21st Century.
The Chaplain is committed to the pastoral care of the bereaved when they experience the loss of a friend or family member. He is also available to conduct funeral services, either in Church, at the Crematorium or another suitable location.
