Bishop to visit St. John’s Episcopal Church June 29

stjohnsbishop

LAKEPORT, Calif. – Northern California Episcopal Bishop Barry L. Beisner of Sacramento will make his official parochial visitation to St. John’s Episcopal Church in Lakeport on Sunday, June 29, at 10 a.m.

This is one of the most important events in the life of an Episcopal parish, connecting the local congregation to the area diocese, the national church, and ultimately the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Bishop Beisner will preside at the celebration of Holy Eucharist, preach, administer confirmation, formally receive into the Episcopal Church those who come from other church backgrounds, and offer all an opportunity to reaffirm baptismal vows.

Afterwards, the bishop will meet with those present at the hospitality hour and speak with church leaders.

If you are presently worshiping at St. John’s and would like to formalize your affiliation with the parish and the Episcopal Church in either of the ways described above, please let parish priest Fr. Leo Joseph know so that the necessary arrangements can be made in advance.

The community is invited to be present at St. John’s on June 29 to welcome the bishop and receive the blessings of his visit.

The church is located at 1190 N. Forbes, Lakeport, www.saintjohnslakeport.org .
