The Guild Room
All Are Welcome Even If You Aren't Being Confirmed, Received, or Reaffirmed.
The Episcopal Church urges all its baptized members to make a mature public affirmation of their baptismal promises, and since the earliest centuries of the Church, this happens in the presence of a bishop, who ‘CONFIRMS’ their faith. Though often seen as a rite of passage for teenagers who may have been baptized as infants, in truth Confirmation is appropriate for people at any stage of life who are ready to make this important affirmation. Of note, in order to be a “voting” member of the church or a delegate to our diocesan convention it is required that a person be a confirmed Episcopalian.
We would also recommend this class for those who would like to formally be RECEIVED into the Episcopal Church. Candidates for reception normally have made a mature commitment in another Christian fellowship and wish to be affiliated with the Episcopal Church. Another reason to take this class would be to REAFFIRM your baptismal vows. This refers to people who are returning to the church after a period of unbelief or those who have entered a significant new level of spiritual life.
Our Confirmation Class will begin on Sunday, March 5 from 9:15 - 10:00 in the Guild Room and will run until Palm Sunday, April 9. This is open to both youth and adults. It will run for six weeks and it is imperative that you make every effort to be at all the classes. Confirmation itself will happen at our Easter Vigil service on Saturday, April 15. Contact Canon Gabriel Morrow with any questions or if you would like to sign up. All are welcome to sit in on the class even if you don’t desire to be confirmed, received, or reaffirmed. It’s going to be good!
