CONFIRMATION CLASSES BEGIN AT ST. FRANCIS
ON SUNDAY, JULY 7, 2019

WHAT IS CONFIRMATION? 

The sacramental rite in which the candidates "express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop" 
(BCP p. 860).
 


Father Tim and St. Francis Catechist John Griffing, will be conducting confirmation (catechism) classes each Sunday during the month of July (7, 14, 21, and 28) in the Parish library. 

The classes are open to youth ages 13 and over and 
adults of all ages.
 

The classes are intended for who have not been received into the Episcopal Church; for those answering the call of reaffirmation into the Church; or anyone wishing to learn more about the Episcopal Church. The 2018 class included all of the above.

Classes include, but are not limited to: 

* Church History; * The Bible; * The Life of Jesus; 
and * The Book of Common Prayer, among others. 

A retreat at the Church is scheduled for Saturday, September 28 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. where participants will participate in an instructional Eucharist and prepare for the Bishop's annual visit. The Bishop's 2019 parish visit is scheduled for 
Sunday, October 6, 2019.
 

Please speak with Father Tim or John (850-450-5126) 
if you would like to join the group.
