Confirmation

Sacrament of Confirmation

In Him [Christ] you also, who have heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and have believed in Him, are now sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, which is the first installment of our inheritance toward redemption as God’s possession, to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14)

The Sacrament of Confirmation seals the recipient with the gift of the Holy Spirit.  This “sealing” brings into fullness the Sacrament of Baptism.  Along with the Sacraments of Baptism and the Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, is one of the Sacraments of Christian Initiation.

Receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace, and is administered by the laying on of hands by a Bishop in the Apostolic Succession.

Please complete the Application for Confirmation.  This must be completed one week prior to the Bishop’s Annual Visit.

Confirmation for Teenagers and Adults

The sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated at St. John’s during the annual visit by the Bishop.

Teens from the 8th grade on that have received the sacraments of Baptism and are receiving the Holy Eucharist on a regular basis attend a program conducted by the clergy.

Adults attend the Adult Inquirer’s Class taught by the Rector.  For a current schedule please contact the Parish Office or the Rector.
