Confirmation and Reception into the Episcopal Church
When you join St. Thomas as a member, we also invite you to take the next step and be either confirmed or received by our bishop. Baptism makes us Christian. Confirmation marks a mature, public commitment to the vows of baptism. Reception is for those who were confirmed previously in another tradition but now desire to be part of the Episcopal Church. In these liturgies, our bishop prays for the Holy Spirit to work within you, and we celebrate that we are all part of an Episcopal community that is larger than St. Thomas.
The St. Thomas Choir will sing at a service for the whole Diocese on Sunday, December 11 at the Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta. We invite all to be part of that service, even if you’ve been confirmed or received before. We will carpool together. Or, if you prefer not to go to Atlanta, Bishop Wright will join us here on January 22 at 3 pm for a service for congregations in this region. Fill out the form below to let us know which service you plan to attend.
