Baptism & Confirmation
At St. Michael's, baptisms are done periodically within appropriate church services. At the 10am Easter Sunday Service, we welcomed four new members into the Christian community. If you would like to be baptized or schedule a baptism for your child(ren) and/or grandchild(ren), please connect with Rev. Mary 916.488.3550 x 15 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Rt. Rev. Barry Beisner will be visiting St. Michael's May 21, 2107. He will be Confirming, Reaffirming, and Receiving members. If you would like to be Confirmed (for those who have not been confirmed in any of the catholic traditions), Received (for those who have been confirmed in the catholic tradition) or Reaffirm your Baptismal Vows, please let the office know. Sign ups will start on March 26th. You are required to attend The Confirmation Class which will be after the 10am service on April 23, April 30, May 7, and May 14. Also the Bishop likes to meet with you before the service. This will take place at 4:00pm on May 20th. I hope you will consider joining this class, it is a wonderful way to continue your education of and formation within The Episcopal Tradition. If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Mary
