Will you like
I accede to the doctrine, discipline, worship, Constitution, and Canons of The Episcopal Church and to the Constitution and Canons of The Protestant Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, otherwise known as the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts, and acknowledge their authority.
Will you like to be officially Received to the Episcopal Church? Baptized persons who have been members of another Christian fellowship and who wish to be affiliated with the Episcopal Church may make a public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their baptism in the presence of a bishop. The bishop lays hands on each candidate for reception and says, “We recognize you as a member of the one holy catholic and apostolic Church, and we receive you into the fellowship of this Communion” (BCP, p. 418). Candidates for reception normally have made a mature commitment in another Christian fellowship. Some dioceses have reserved reception for those candidates who have previously received sacramental confirmation with laying on of hands by a bishop in apostolic succession.
