to be held in advance of Bishop's Visitation
Join us as Church of the Messiah extends a warm welcome to our Diocesan Bishop, The Rt. Rev. Daniel Gutierrez, on Wednesday evening, May 8th.
On Wednesday evening, May 8 Church of the Messiah will host our Bishop, The Rt. Rev. Daniel Gutierrez. Bp. Gutierrez will be the preacher and celebrant at the Eucharist; and following the service a festive reception honoring the Bishop and Confirmands will complete the evening.
The Bishop’s Visitation also presents an opportunity for the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation, Reception and Reaffirmation to be celebrated.
Are you …
an adult who has received the call to Christ and now wish to be baptized into the Church and become a disciple?
an older teen or adult, ready to make a mature decision to confirm the promises and assume the responsibilities first made by your parents and godparents at your baptism?
a baptized and confirmed member in another branch of the Christian faith and now wish to be received into the Episcopal Church?
merely interested in learning more about the Church’s history, sacraments and creeds, and explore your own spiritual needs and calling?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then our upcoming Lenten Sunday Adult Forums are for you!
As part of the Diocesan Bishop’s Parish Visitation, the parish clergy are invited to present members of the congregation seeking the sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation/Reception/Reaffirmation. In preparation, those interested will meet for six Sundays in Lent, beginning March 10th through April 14th.
