Confirmation, Reception, Reaffirmation: Which is right for you?
Confirmation is a mature, public affirmation of your faith, celebrated by the prayers and laying on of hands by our bishop. It is a celebration of your baptism and your desire to live out your faith in the Episcopal Church. If you were baptized as a child (in any denomination) but never did confirmation, this rite is for you.
Reception is for those who have been baptized and confirmed in a Christian denomination that has a ritual of confirmation (such as Methodists, Catholics or Lutherans) who wish to join the Episcopal Church.
Reaffirmation of Faith is for those who have been baptized and confirmed in the Episcopal Church, but in a church other than St. Columba.
All are welcome to attend any of the upcoming classes, but if you wish to be confirmed or received or to reaffirm your faith, you must complete a registration form and speak with Rev. Debra. To register or ask questions about any aspect of your decision to join the Episcopal Church, contact the Rev. Debra at 305-743-6412
