preparing for a deep faith commitment

The Sacrament of Confirmation is administered by a bishop of the Episcopal Church after a period of prayer and preparation conducted by the clergy of Christ Church. The Book of Common Prayer notes the following on page 412:

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.

Should you feel called to make a public affirmation of faith and commitment to the promises made at Holy Baptism, please contact the parish office either via e-mail, office@christchurchmiddletown.org or call us at (732) 671 -2524.  Thank You!
