The Admittance

The Admittance is an ancient practice for admitting and adopting the Andorian Church beliefs. The ceremony represents the moment Agustin received the promise. When a newborn has reached their second summer, they are brought before a priest of The Four who admits the offspring to the service and protection of the god the parents chose. The ceremony is considered to be one of the most important days of a family's lives, and is often celebrated.


The parents place and their offspring on an altar, exposed to daylight. The priest prepares an ointment and puts it on the child's head. As the child sits in the light, the sun heats the ointment, resulting in the quick tanning of skin underneath. The witnesses recite the Dogma that corellates with the chosen god while the local Bishop blesses the child, officially admitting them into the church. The mark left on the child's forehead usually fades a few days later.   The celebrations usually start immedietly after the ceremony, as guests escort the child's family back to their dweling while singing verses and songs for the new child's fortune. Once the family arrives home, food and frink are often served as more visitors come to great and bless the child.
