Persons sixteen years and older are to be considered adult communicants.

Communicant in Good Standing

Someone “who for the previous year has been faithful in corporate worship, unless for good cause prevented, and has been faithful in working, praying and giving for the spread of the Kingdom of God.” (The Constitutions and Canons of the Episcopal Church)

Confirmed Communicant

Any baptized person who has received the laying on of hands by a Bishop of the Episcopal Church. Adult Confirmation happens in the fall and spring, and all members of Saint Michael are encouraged to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church.

Communicant of Record

A baptized or confirmed Communicant who fulfills his or her pledge by a form of payment that can be recorded in the church’s files as corresponding to that communicant. (A person placing cash in the offering plate without identification, is a Communicant but not one of record.)
