There are not any “requirements” for being part of this community of religion. If you want to be baptized or confirmed, or to switch your membership from one other Episcopal parish, we’d love for you to take action. Everything we do, every thing we provide, is open to all, no matter whether you’re a “member” of this church.
Tombstones and the coats of arms of the capitular households recall their reminiscence. The coats of arms are enriched by modern keystones donated by the federal and state governments, the bishopric and city of Mainz. Works of art, such as the enthroned God the Father from the fifteenth century, or the late Gothic sculpture of St. Anne, the Virgin and the Christ Child, must also not be overlooked. For some years in St. Stephen’s, children have been baptised within the original Gothic baptismal font from 1330 once more. Marc Chagall, who turned an honorary citizen of Mainz, however by no means obtained to know the city, accomplished his ultimate window shortly earlier than his demise at the age of ninety seven. Nineteen later and deliberately more modest home windows within the aspect aisles by Charles Marq, from the Atelier Jacques Simon in Reims, serve to steer up to the masterpieces.
The church, on the method highway to the city centre, seats 250 and has disabled entry. The church has a properly-geared up kitchen, a separate assembly room for Junior Church, an open social space and toilets together with disabled amenities. I thought this is able to have all been over by final Easter, boy was I wrong. I do hope and pray that we will be back to a more regular setting in our Church sometime this summer. In the meantime maintain the faith, share the religion and be secure on the market.
