Are You Interested in Becoming a Member of Saint Luke's?
If I’m a member of another Episcopal church? If you are coming to us from an Episcopal background, contact our Parish Secretary, Nancy Cain firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-6200), and ask her to contact your previous church to transfer your membership.
If I’ve been baptized in a church other than an Episcopal Church? Register the date and place of your baptism with our parish secretary, Nancy Cain (802-6200 or email@example.com). You will then be a baptized member of Saint Luke’s and able to participate in all programs and ministries. You will not, however, be eligible to serve in or vote on an elected position (Vestry or diocesan committee) until you are Confirmed or Received.
What is Confirmation and how do I become confirmed? Confirmation is a sacramental rite in which persons who have been duly prepared make a mature, public affirmation of their faith and a commitment to the responsibilities of Baptism and receive the laying-on-of-hands by the bishop. Saint Luke’s 101, an adult confirmation class taught by the Rector, will begin in the spring and will include an evening session with dinner and an Instructed Eucharist. The Rite of Confirmation for adults will take place on Sunday, April 7, 2013 here at Saint Luke’s. For more information, please contact Jeanna Speegle (802-6218 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
What if I have been confirmed in another church other than an Episcopal Church? If you have been confirmed in another denomination (Roman Catholic, Lutheran, Orthodox), having received the laying-on-of-hands from a bishop, please speak to any of the clergy. They will arrange for you to be received by the bishop. Persons who wish to be received generally take the Confirmation class, Saint Luke’s 101, as a refresher of their previous preparation and as an introduction to the Episcopal Church. These classes take place in the spring. For more information, please contact Jeanna Speegle (802-6218 or email@example.com)
