Pathways to the Episcopal Church and
the Saint James Community

Confirmation
Confirmation is a sacrament of the Church. It is an informed profession of the faith that may be made by baptized individuals. To be confirmed is to outwardly proclaim your choice of the Episcopal faith and tradition. It involves the laying on of hands upon the head of the individual confirmed by the bishop.

Reception
If you have been confirmed in another liturgical tradition, such as a Roman Catholic or Lutheran church, you can be received into the Episcopal church by our bishop.

Reaffirmation
Those who have been baptized and confirmed in the Episcopal Church (or any member church in the Anglican Communion) and wish to recommit themselves to the Christian life of faith may choose to reaffirm their baptismal covenant with the bishop.

Letter of Transfer
A letter of transfer is used to move your membership from one Episcopal church to another. If you are already a member of another Episcopal church, and you would like to join Saint James, please contact the church office to let us know. We have a special form we send to your former parish that “transfers” your membership to Saint James. If you would like to transfer your membership, please click here to email the church office and begin the process.
