Baptisms and Confirmation

Holy Baptism

Holy Baptism is full initiation by water and the Holy Spirit into Christ’s Body the Church. Those desirous of the Sacrament of Holy Baptism should contact the Program Coordinator for Music & Liturgy, Sarah Marczynski, 864.271.8773.

The Sacrament of Holy Baptism is celebrated on appointed Sundays throughout the Church Year and is a public celebration in which we welcome the newly baptized into the life of the Church. Holy Baptism is appropriately administered within the Eucharist as the chief service on a Sunday or other feast.

Confirmation

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
