Confirmation

Confirmation is an important milestone in our spiritual lives as followers of Jesus Christ in The Episcopal Church. Young adults ages 13-16 are encouraged to discern their readiness for engaging the Catechumenate, a year-long engagement with Holy Scripture and the Episcopal tradition through study, prayer, and fellowship.

Young adults interested in applying for entrance to the Catechumenate are invited to write a formal letter of intention and to schedule a meeting with clergy as well as parents to discuss the process.

To begin the process of discerning for the Catechumenate, please contact Rev. Morgan Mercer Ladd at mladd@incarnationgc.org.

Summer with Family Ministries

June 25 to August 30

Join the Family Ministries team in our 200 Hours Outside Summer Challenge. Inspired by the 1,000 Hours Outside movement, whose purpose is to match the average screen time of children with outdoor time. This summer we’re taking on this short term challenge to encourage outdoor programming, free play, and creation exploration. Will you spend some time outside with us? Check out our many offerings to help you reach your goal this summer.

Friday, June 25 from 10am to 12pm will be our Summer Kick Off. Celebrate the last day of school with your friends at the cathedral. Come by 10am to 12pm for socially distanced free play, summer time snacks, and a special summer blessing. Kick off your 200 Hours Outside challenge right with this afternoon of fun and fellowship. Masks must be worn by all children over 2 and caregivers for the entirety of the program and all attendees will be asked to check in with our contact tracing app. There is no cost for this event. Realm registration is encouraged but not required.

Seedlings Registration is Open!

Preschool and early elementary school students will love the experiential lessons outdoors.

Registration cost of $35 per child helps offset materials and a t-shirt for each child. Financial support may be offered to any families in need of assistance. Space is limited. Register on Realm now. For more information, please contact Kate Akerman at kakerman@incarnationgc.org.
