From The Book of Common Prayer: “In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an early age are expected, when they are ready and have been duly prepared,to make a mature public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and to receive the laying on of hands by the bishop. Those baptized as adults, unless baptized with laying on of hands by a bishop, are also expected to make a public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism in the presence of a bishop and to receive the laying on of hands.”
The rites of Confirmation, Reception, and Reaffirmation are available several times annually at regional services presided over by one of our bishops. Please contact the The Rev. Grey Maggiano if you are interested in one of these rites.
