Christian Confirmation

Confirmation or Christian Initiation of Adults

  • Are you are a “cradle Episcopalian,” baptized (perhaps in infancy), but never confirmed?
  • Have you been away from any church for a long time and want to recommit yourself and life to Christ?
  • Before coming to All Saints, had you lived your life in a different denominational tradition?
  • Do you simply want to understand better what we believe, how we worship, our customs, how we live and why?

Confirmation strengthens the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the life of someone who has been living the new life of baptism and who has matured in faith. Like baptism, it cannot be repeated.

If you’ve been baptized and confirmed in another Christian denomination and you want to make our church your permanent home — you can be received into the Episcopal Church.

Episcopalians may also reaffirm their baptismal vows as an adult gesture of recommitment or after a long absence from Christian worship or practice.
