This is your special invitation to be part of the Confirmation Preparation Class at Good Shepherd Anglican Church. (Our Bishop, the Rt. Rev. Ryan Reed, will be at GSAC on Sunday, February 14th, 2021 for his annual visitation and confirmation of all candidates prepared to receive the Sacrament of Holy Confirmation.)
You are receiving this invitation for one of the following reasons:
i. You have indicated interest in preparing for confirmation, being a sponsor, or renewing your understanding of the Faith.
ii. Your status as a “confirmed” member of the parish is uncertain to me, and I’d like to offer you the opportunity to prepare for confirmation, in case you have not been confirmed.
iii. You are very new to GSAC, and may not have a clear understanding of what it means to be an “Anglican”, and thus could benefit from a ‘refresher course’ in the Faith.
iv. In my humble opinion, you would make a great sponsor for someone else, or you may benefit from simply returning through the classes, even if you do not intend to be confirmed.
We will begin our preparation with an “Organizing Meeting” Saturday, November 14th , at 1 pm. If you attend this meeting, you are only obligating yourself to “come and see” what this class will be like. We will decide the day and time of the meetings (probably Saturdays, late morning or afternoon), and I’ll give a brief outline of the course content.
We will gather in the parish hall at 1 pm, and then move across the parking lot for a tour of the Main Church, and why it is important to the remainder of our classes. I hope to see YOU on Saturday, November 14th.
Faithfully yours in Christ,
Fr. Stuart Smith
Rector, Good Shepherd Anglican Church
