Bishop John Stephens and the Mission and Ministry staff of the Diocese of New Westminster invite all those being confirmed, reaffirmed or received into the Anglican Church this year to join us for a day of learning, conversation and worship.
Explore your spiritual gifts. Ask the big questions. Get up close and personal to a sacred space. You can do all this at the upcoming Confirmation Preparation Day on April 22 at Christ Church Cathedral. This one day event, hosted by Bishop John, is for all youth and adults who are preparing for confirmation, reception into the Anglican Church, or reaffirmation of baptismal vows. The day will include prayer, exploring Anglican identity, seeing the process of confirmation, reflecting on our baptism and spiritual gifts, and lots of conversation and interactive activity.
If you have questions about whether this day might be for you, talk with your parish priest or deacon to get more information and discern a decision.
Doors open at 9:30am and the program runs from 10:00am to 3:30pm. We will gather all together and then split into two streams for youth and adults. A delicious lunch will be provided. The day is organized in anticipation of the Diocesan Confirmation service which will be held at the Cathedral on May 6 at 10:30am.
Registration is closed.
Date of Event: April 22, 2023
Location: Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver, BC
Note: this is an optional day and not a pre-requisite for confirmation
