What is confirmation?
Confirmation is the sacramental rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop.
What is required of those to be confirmed?
Baptized adults may be confirmed after participating in Discovery Classes designed for adult inquirers of the Episcopal faith. Upon reaching the age of twelve and the fifth grade, a child may be accepted for confirmation after receiving classroom instruction in the History, Creeds, and practices of the Episcopal faith. It is required that they have been baptized, are sufficiently instructed in the Christian faith, are penitent for their sins, and are ready to publicly affirm their confession of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
