We are so excited to have Bishop Todd coming to Via Vancouver in February for the first confirmation service in our journey together as a church. Confirmation is a sacrament of the church in which, as Thomas McKenzie states, "the rite by which people who have been previously baptized are released into ministry through the laying on of hands by the bishop."
On Monday February 10th, Bishop Todd will be at Via Vancouver for a confirmation service. Janna and I were confirmed along with our other Via Clergy at Via Days in May of this year. Having +Todd confirm us, by laying hands on us and praying that we would be filled afresh with the Holy Spirit, was a beautiful and significant moment in our journeys.
In preparation for the confirmation service on February 10, we will be hosting a confirmation class at Mike and Sara’s on Saturday January 25th. This class is a great step for anyone who wants to learn more about confirmation, and is required for anyone seeking to be confirmed. The class will provide teaching on the Sacrament of Confirmation, where we will look together at the biblical basis for it, further our understanding of the sacraments, as well as what it means to join the Anglican Communion.
