Baptism and Confirmation
On March 22, Bishop John will visit St. Albans for one of his final episcopal visits. As part of his visit, we will have confirmations on Sunday March 22. And we plan to have baptisms as we often do at our Easter Vigil on April 11. So if you are interested in being baptised or confirmed please talk to Rev. Mark. A Baptism and Confirmation course will be offered as part of our preparation together. Confirmation is a sacrament of the church that allows you to renew your baptis
mal covenant, to learn more about our faith, to make for yourself the promises that were made on your behalf when you were baptized, to receive the laying on of hands and prayers for strengthening by the Holy Spirit, and for teenagers to take their place as adult members of our community.
