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.
