Confirmation

Confirmation, May 4, 2019

"In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an early age are expected, when they are ready and have been duly prepared, to make a mature and public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and to receive the laying on of hands by the bishop." – Book of Common Prayer, p. 412

IMPORTANT NOTE:

On March 25 Bishop Hughes announced that, due to the restrictions on gatherings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, all diocesan events scheduled for April 2020 are canceled. This includes our Confirmation services on April 25 and 26.

Due to the uncertainty around when gatherings will be ale to resume, we are not able to reschedule at this time. If it should become possible for us to reschedule these services later in the year, we will do our best to do so.
