How to Become an Episcopalian and/or a Member of Christ Church
† If you are a confirmed Episcopalian, have been a member of another Episcopal church, and wish to join this parish, you may contact the church office and ask us to request a letter of transfer from your former church.
† If you are a member of another Christian tradition, you must provide some proof or testimony of your baptism (which makes you a “baptized member” of the Episcopal Church). Then, after preparation – Discovery Class , you re-affirm your faith and are welcomed as a “confirmed member” of the Episcopal Church by our Bishop. You may also call 985-892-3177 (office hours are 8am-4pm, M-F) or e-mail one of the parish clergy. Discovery class is offered once or twice a year, the next one is March 22-23, 2019.
† If you are not baptized, Christ Church will prepare you for the sacrament of baptism. For more information, e-mail or call the clergy at 985-892-3177.
† Youth Confirmation classes are offered as part of our Christian Formation classes. To learn more, e-mail or call the Youth Coordinator at 985-892-3177.
† To be an active member of Christ Church, whether or not you are a confirmed Episcopalian, you must be regular in worship, participate in the life and ministry of the parish, and be willing to share in the financial support of the parish.
Anyone may participate in any of the programs, ministries, service, worship, classes, and other activities. However, to serve on the Vestry, which is the lay governing body of the church, only active, confirmed Episcopalians may be elected to this body. If you have any questions, please call the parish office at 985-892-3177.
