In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an early age or as adults 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. (BCP, 412)
Join in the celebration with the whole diocesan household!
The Rt. Rev. Catherine Waynick, Provisional Bishop, will confirm, receive, and reaffirm candidates during two regional confirmation services to be held this spring – a rescheduled southern/central service at St. John’s, Midland on June 2nd and one in our northern half at Trinity, Alpena on April 21.
Each member of the diocese is encouraged to attend and support our brothers and sisters.
Individuals that would like to be confirmed at one of the services must prepare in consultation with their parish leadership and must be registered by filling out the form below.
For Participants & Sponsoring Congregations
All congregations sponsoring candidates for confirmation, reception, and/or reaffirmation must register their participants using the button below.
The deadline to register is one week before the service.
All participants will participate in a group conversation with Bishop Cate one hour prior to the service – 1:00pm.
A letter with more details, including Bishop Cate’s expectations for preparation, has been sent to clergy and senior wardens by mail.
