Baptism, Confirmation, Reaffirmation, and Reception

Holy Baptism

Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which one embraces the Christian way and becomes a member of Christ’s body, the Church. Baptism is an event of primary significance and celebration, not just for the individual, but for the whole church. Baptisms for infants, children, and adults are offered throughout the year on specific Sundays and always on Easter. Preparation is offered regularly in anticipation of Baptism Sundays. For upcoming Baptism dates and registration, please contact our priest, The Rev. Hunter Ruffin.

Confirmation, Reaffirmation, and Reception

Confirmation, reaffirmation, and reception are ministries specifically given to the bishop, the chief pastor of the diocese. During the bishop’s visit to the parish or at a diocesan service held at the cathedral, persons are able to make a public affirmation of faith and receive the laying on of hands from the bishop.

Reaffirmation is for persons interested in reaffirming their faith in Christ in a public celebration. Reception is for persons that have been confirmed in another tradition and wish to be formally received into The Episcopal Church.

For more information about confirmation, reaffirmation, and reception, please contact our priest, The Rev. Hunter Ruffin.
