An Introduction to the Christian Faith and the Anglican Tradition
This class serves as preparation for all adults who wish to be baptized and/or confirmed.
“On the Canterbury Trail” is the class we encourage everyone at our parish to take, especially those who are new to Incarnation. During the semester, we will explore three major topics: the basic teachings and beliefs of the Christian Church (including what it means to be a Christian); the Sacraments and worship life of the Church, with particular attention to the Anglican/Episcopal tradition and our history; and the life of prayer that God intends and desires for every Christian and the tools and teaching given by the Church to assist us in knowing the Lord in this way.
Everyone who joins the parish at Incarnation 101 is strongly encouraged to take this class. This class also serves as the necessary preparation for adults who wished to be baptized and/or confirmed. If you have already been confirmed in the Roman Catholic or Orthodox Churches, this class is also required preparation to be received into the Episcopal Church/Anglican Communion. All adults who have been baptized are strongly encourage to be confirmed.
On the Canterbury Trail: Saturday, March 2, will be one of the highlights of the class. From noon until 5pm, we will gather for lunch and for the two most important talks of the class: first, on what it means to gives one’s life over to Jesus, and second, on how Jesus sustains us and centers our worship through Holy Communion (sometimes called the Holy Eucharist or Mass.)
Adult Baptisms: 8 pm Sat, March 30 (Easter Vigil)
