Becoming a Member of the Episcopal Church and Trinity Church
To officially become a member of the Episcopal Church, one must be Confirmed and/or Received by a Bishop of the Church. The ceremony generally takes place within a Sunday service at a church. The general rule is that if one has been confirmed (received the Sacrament of Confirmation) in another Christian denomination, such as the Roman Catholic or Lutheran Church, then one need only to be received into the Episcopal Church by a Bishop. If one has not yet been confirmed, then confirmation by an Episcopal Bishop would also automatically make one a member of the Episcopal Church. One can then join the Episcopal Church Parish of his/her choice. Trinity Church requires that those preparing to be received and/or confirmed must take a series of classes in preparation. The Bishop of Mississippi will be visiting Trinity Church on Sunday, February 25, 2018.
Already an Episcopalian?
If one is already an Episcopalian and wishes to transfer his/her membership ("letter") to Trinity Church from another Episcopal church, then he/she should contact the parish office here.
