Equipped for Ministry Class-Preparing for Confirmation, Reception, and Reaffirmation

In preparation of the Archbishop’s arrival in February, we are starting our Equipped for Ministry Class on January 8, 2023 for those who wish to be Confirmed in the Anglican Communion, Received in the Anglican Communion, or Reaffirm their faith.

Confirmation: What is it and why do we do it?

In the rite, a person renews his or her baptismal vows of faith in Jesus as Savior and Lord. Confirmation is especially appropriate for those who have been baptized as infants and now own their faith in Christ for themselves.

Second, Confirmation is about anointing. When the bishop lays his hands on you during the rite, he asks God to pour out his Holy Spirit on you and give you the power to carry out your ministry and mission in the life of Christ the King. The Spirit has given each member of the church gifts, abilities and passions and sends us on mission for the kingdom. Think of it as the “ordination of the laity.”

Who is Confirmation for?

Confirmation is specifically for those who have not been confirmed in the Anglican Communion. If you were confirmed in The Episcopal Church before the summer of 2003, your confirmation counts in the Anglican Communion.
