Confirmation & Reception
The Sacrament of Confirmation is the rite by which we make a mature profession of our faith before the Bishop and take on responsibility for our faith and membership in the Church. Since we become full members of Christ’s Body and the Church through our baptism, confirmation is a strengthening of the gifts given to us in baptism so that we can enter into our vocation, our calling, as Christians.
Confirmation is also the way to officially become an Episcopalian. If you have already been confirmed by a bishop in the Roman Catholic Church or the Lutheran Church, you may be received into the Episcopal Church by the bishop at the same confirmation service.
