Confirmation Sunday, April 27 with a visit from Bishop High
The Rt. Rev. Rayford B. High, Jr. will be visiting St. Martin-in-the-Fields Episcopal Church on Sunday, April 27. At the 10:30am service, Bishop High will confirm those who have committed themselves to the next step in their journey of faith. A reception following the 10:30am service will be held in the east parish hall.
Your prayers are needed for those being confirmed and received. The teen confirmands will attend a retreat led by Mother Amy Haynie and Corrie Cabes on April 25 and 26 at the Episcopal Church of the Annunciation in Lewisville. The adult confirmands will attend a retreat led by Father Michael Wallens at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
receive into the arms of your mercy
all who will be confirmed this day,
and make them your own for ever;
that, having tasted of your goodness,
they may ever hunger for your continuing presence
in their walk of faith. Amen.
