Confirmation

Rev. Cliff WarnerCliffNotes

I remember well the moment of my confirmation, on bended knee upon the cathedral’s stone floor. It felt like a “thin place” and time, where the veil between heaven and earth was more permeable, the presence of God more near. I want to invite you to be confirmed at Christ Church on April 18th by Bishop Philip Jones.

Who can be confirmed?
Anyone who has completed a Christ Church Membership Class or a Confirmation Class. If you have completed a comparable form of preparation that might substitute for the above, please contact me at cliff@christchurchofaustin.org.

Four reasons to be confirmed:
1. To get connected. Join the global and historic body of Christ, through the Anglican Communion, and be identify with something larger than ourselves. The Anglican Communion is a rich global mosaic, comprised of many tribes, tongues and nations, a church exploding with new life in many areas of the world.

2. To be blessed. Receive the laying on of hands from Bishop Jones and a prayer for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in your life. Since the early church, leaders were commissioned for ministry by the laying on of hands, one generation to the next, all the way down to our Bishop, and then to you.

3. To confirm baptismal vows. If you were baptized as an infant, this is an opportunity to present yourself publically and voluntarily, as a follower of Christ in the company of his people.

4. To invite unchurched friends. Ask them to come witness this special day in your life.

If you would like to be confirmed please advise the office by April 12 by completing this form.

Have a fantastic and safe Spring Break!
