Confirmation is offered for those who have been baptized to make a mature declaration of faith before the Bishop of the Diocese.

In Reception, Baptized persons who have been members of another Christian fellowship and who wish to join the Episcopal Church make a public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their baptism.

Inquirer’s Classes for adults and children are led at Christ Church by clergy and are scheduled annually for those seeking confirmation in the Episcopal Church, reception into the Episcopal Church from another tradition, or the reaffirmation of baptismal vows.
