Confirmation


Sunday, June 19: The bishop of the Diocese of Southern Virginia, the Rt Rev. Susan Haynes, will be making her annual visit to Good Shepherd. The purpose of this visit is to strengthen the bonds between our church and the diocese, as well as to provide an opportunity to administer the Rite of Confirmation and Reaffirmation of Baptismal Vows. This service will provide an opportunity for those who wish to join our church and are coming from a denomination other than the Episcopal Church and for those Episcopalians who wish to reaffirm their baptismal vows, to be received and affirmed and welcomed as members of the Episcopal Church.
If you or someone you know would like to be confirmed or to reaffirm your baptism, please contact Fr. Terry. He is currently developing a process to prepare candidates for the Bishop’s Visit.
