Bishop Visit

Bishop Goff & Confirmations and Receptions


7:30 AM – 12:30 PM

St. Christopher's Church

Bishop Goff & Confirmations and Receptions! - In just a few months, on Sunday, January 14, 2018, our Bishop Suffragan for the Diocese of Virginia - Bishop Susan Goff - will lead both of our Worship Services that

morning. At 10:30 a.m. she will also preside over Confirmations (for those already baptized in a Christian tradition) and Receptions (for those Confirmed in another Christian Tradition who wish to formally become Episcopalians). For parishioners (as defined by the Diocese: regular attendees, givers and participants) high school ages on up please see Fr. Peter so that he can arrange for you to go through the proper preparation for this Sacrament. High School Youth might have a few gatherings with our Youth Minister for Teens, Meredith Maple, while adults will go through a "home study" program offered by Fr. Peter. Episcopal parishioners from other parishes may also join us on that Sunday, but those individuals should have their rectors contact both Fr. Peter and the Diocese of Virginia. Remember our Bishop visits are once every two years, so if you are truly ready to consider to make the commitment to this Christian rite of passage, now is the time to make that known! You can contact Fr. Peter by phoning the Church Office.
