In our liturgy for Holy Baptism, the concluding prayer for the baptized person includes this invitation to our journey of faith … “Give them an inquiring and discerning heart, the courage to will and persevere, a spirit to know and to love you and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works.” At our Confirmation, we accept the promises made for us by parents and godparents, and seek to live into this prayer as adults in the Episcopal Church.
For those adults of “inquiring and discerning hearts” at St. Thomas’s, I will offer What It Means To Be An “Episcopalian” – An Outline Of Our Christian Faith & Life. This course is open to anyone who desires to journey deeper in this commitment we live. It is required for those persons who desire to be confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church at the regional confirmation service, the Day of Pentecost: June 4 at 4:00 p.m., Christ Church Christiana Hundred. The course booklet will be provided for reading prior to the class to maximize our time together
There will be two teaching sessions and they will be held at day and/or evening best for those interested found best for as many possible To determine our two meeting times, please contact Fr. Paul if you are interested by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, on or before April 22.
