Adult Confirmation and Inquirers Class

Classes for Adult Confirmation & Reception will begin on Sunday, March 6 following the 10:30 liturgy and will be led by Anne Szlivko, Mike Burke and Father Gerns. Confirmands will be received by The Rt. Rev. Paul V. Marshall on May 15, 2011. Any adult over 18 who is interested in being confirmed, or received from another Christian tradition (where you've already been confirmed) are welcome. These classes are also for those who wish to publically renew their baptismal vows before the Bishop.

All sessions are Sundays at Noon in the Charney Room and normally scheduled for 90 minutes unless otherwise noted. Please note: there are two Saturday morning sessions.

If you need child care for the sessions, please let Father Gerns know in advance so we can arrange this.

Attendees should have with them a Bible and a Prayer Book (if you don't own one, or want a new one, we can help you). We will be following the text Welcome to the Episcopal Church by Christopher L. Webber and using The Episcopal Handbook and as well as videos from a variety of sources.
