Confirmation is the 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. It is required of those to be confirmed that they have been baptized, are sufficiently instructed in the Christian Faith, are penitent for their sins, and are ready to affirm their confession of Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Because Confirmation involves a Bishop, the rite can be celebrated when a bishop visits Holy Trinity or at one of the special services at The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. If you are interested in being confirmed, please speak with the rector, The Rev. John F. Beddingfield, who can be reached at 212-289-4100 x. 204 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
