Summer Confirmation Services
Bishop-elect Deon Johnson is planning to offer two Baptism and Confirmation Services for the diocese during the summer of 2020:
- Saturday, July 18
Christ Church Cathedral, St. Louis
- Saturday, July 25
Calvary Episcopal Church, Columbia
Holy Baptism is the sacrament by which God adopts us as his children and makes us members of Christ's Body, the Church, and inheritors of the kingdom of God. (The Book of Common Prayer, page 858)
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. (The Book of Common Prayer, page 860)
If you are interested in being baptized or confirmed this summer, you should contact your parish for instruction. Each parish must submit proper paperwork for all individuals participating in either of these summer services.
Parishes should download the following for details:
- Letter to Congregations: Confirmation 2020
- Information regarding 2020 Confirmations
- Record of Confirmation and Baptism
Please note: The health and safety of everyone in our diocese is the top priority in all our planning. If state and/or local officials advise against gathering, these events will be rescheduled. Please watch for further announcements from the Bishop's office.
