Confirmation, Reception and Reaffirmation

Please contact one of the clergy if you are interested in being confirmed, received or reaffirmed.

Confirmation is a mature, public affirmation of your faith, celebrated by the prayers and laying of hands by our bishop. It is a celebration of your baptism and desire to live out your faith in the Episcopal Church. 

Reception is for those who have been baptized and confirmed in a Christian denomination who wish to join the Episcopal Church.

Reaffirmation of Faith is for those who have been baptised and confirmed in the Episcopal Church, but in a church other than St. Mark's.
