Becoming a Member

If you are a member of another Episcopal parish, your membership can be transferred easily to St. Michael’s. Simply call the parish office and request a letter of transfer. The parish secretary will take care of the details.

If you are already a member of another branch of the one holy, catholic, and apostolic church (Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Old Catholic, etc.), you can be received into the Episcopal Church at the service scheduled by the Bishop of the Diocese for that purpose.

If you are a member of a Protestant Christian denomination, all that is needed to become a member of St. Michael’s is for your baptism by water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit to be recorded in the records of this parish. If you are a teenager or an adult, you will also want to make a public profession of your faith at the next scheduled administration of the sacrament of Holy Confirmation. To prepare for confirmation you should attend Inquirers’ class to learn more about the faith. Speak to the Rector about the next scheduled class.

If you are not a baptized Christian you would need to be baptized with water in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. To prepare for the administration of the sacrament of Holy Baptism you would need to attend Inquirers’ class to learn about the faith and make the decision of faith.
