RE Week 3: Initiation Ceremonies
This week we are looking at Christian Initiation Ceremonies.
What does Initiation mean?
Initiation is a rite of passage. Marking you entrance or acceptance into a society or group.
A religious initiation involves making a commitment to that religion.
Baptism is one of the Christian Initiation Ceremonies.
Confirmation is another Christian initiation ceremony. In a Confirmation Ceremony you renew the promises that were made on your behalf, if you were Baptised as a child.
In some Faiths, the commitment to the religion is shown in through actions and rather than through a special ceremony.
