Did you know? (Sunday, May 14, 2023)

The Bishops in the Province unanimously agreed to return to the early Christian practice in which Baptism served as the gateway to Holy Communion. At the Provincial Synod held in May 2019, a resolution was passed proposing that the Province engages in a period of study in preparation for the change. This was to be further discussed and debated at the next triennial Synod of the Province, proposed for 2022. The change comes into effect on the first Sunday of Advent, 2023. This means that as of December 3, 2023, children and adults baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and the Holy Spirit will be allowed to take Holy Communion. They will no longer have to wait until Confirmation.
