Bp. Knisely will be with us for a simple Sung Mass following Evening Prayer at 5:30 on Thursday, July 25, the Feast of St. James the Apostle, for a service of reception. To be a full member of the Episcopal Church, one must be confirmed. But if one has been confirmed already in a church in apostolic succession, such as the Roman Catholic or Orthodox churches, that person must be formally received into the Episcopal Church by the diocesan bishop. We have two candidates for reception from the Roman Catholic Church, and any other candidates for confirmation or reception should make themselves known to Fr. Humphrey no later than July 1.
