The next regional confirmation will be at the Cathedral on Saturday, May sixth at 10:00. If you or a member of your family are interested in being confirmed, please contact Sue Amabile or Ft Harvey so that we can set up confirmation classes. The Second Sunday of Easter (April 30) is a wonderful day for baptisms and/or First Communions. If you are interested in either on that day, please let us know.
Our Prayerbook defines Holy Eucharist as “the principal act of Christian worship on the Lord’s Day and other major Feasts” (13). We offer services of Holy Communion virtually every Sunday at 8:00 and 10:00. The 8:00 service is a little more formal and traditional; the 10:00 service is a little more contemporary. All baptized Christians are welcome to share in Holy Communion around the altar. Ushers will tell you when to come forward. At the altar, you are welcome to stand or kneel, as you are able. The priest will come by with a small wafer; please hold out your hands to receive it. A member of the congregation will follow with a cup of wine. Please dip your wafer in the wine, consume the wafer, and return to your seat. If you would like a brief special prayer, bring forward a ribbon (available from the usher). The priest will ask if you have a particular prayer request. You are welcome to receive a brief blessing rather than communion if you prefer.
Confirmation and Reaffirmation
The Bishop will make his regular visitation to Saint David’s next February. To get ready for his visit, we will offer a series of sessions on “The Episcopal Way” in the Fall. These sessions will prepare participants for formal confirmation, reception, and/or reaffirmation of your baptismal vows. Please consider joining us even if you do not plan to be confirmed, received, or formally renewed—the sessions should be fun! Most likely we will meet on occasional Sundays at 11:45 through the Fall. But if you are interested in participating and that time is not good for you, please let Father Harvey know.
We are in process of putting together a wedding package that we plan to offer the community. In the meantime, we invite anyone interested in being married at St. David's to contact Father Harvey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
