2018 Bishop’s Confirmation Day (BCD) – Feb.24, 2018

Were you confirmed in the last 5 years?  The Bishop would love it if you would attend the first Bishop’s Confirmation Day on February 24th, 2018.

You need to register by emailing Lee Ann Matthews if you plan to attend.  It will be held downtown Montreal at the Diocesan Church Offices at 1444 Union Ave, Montreal, just behind the Anglican Cathedral/Place Cathédral at Ste-Catharine and Union.

Look at the schedule of events planned for the day.  It really does look like a good day, and will be a great place to connect with others who have recently taken the same step in Confirmation as you.

More information…  If you have any questions, please contact the Rev. Sophie Rolland, and she will be happy to explain anything you need to know.
