Confirmation - What Is It Really?

On Sunday May 11th during the 10:00 am service, we will have the joy of a visit from our Diocesan Bishop, Bishop J. Jon Bruno. During the service Bishop Bruno will be laying on hands and confirming those people who have taken the confirmation classes and wish to make an adult commitment to Christ. This rite is an opportunity for those who were baptized as infants or young people to take on the full responsibility of discipleship. The Bishop will ask each person if they truly want to make this commitment to Jesus, to live out the rest of their life as a disciple. Then he will lay hands on each person’s head and will ask God to strengthen that person by the power of the Holy Spirit, for whatever ministry God calls them to. In preparation for this sacrament, Fr. Rob and Mo. Lyn will be offering a series of three 2 hr. classes. They will be held on Sunday, April 13th, April 27th, and May 4th from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm. Lunch will be served. Please let Fr. Rob or Mo. Lyn know if you are planning to attend.
