Confirmations & Receptions

As I noted in the previous posting, this was a big day at St. Bartholomew's. (Arch)Bishop Provence was here to conduct five confirmations including our youngest daughter (she was so excited -- and now has her own copy of our "standard" book: a 1928 BCP plus KJV Bible with Apocrypha signed by the bishop!) and a couple who joined us this year. Fr. Davis introduced each in turn, they knelt and were confirmed.

And Bishop Provence received into the province a Lithuanian lady who had arrived in Seattle the same day as the Lithuanian altar we now use, heard about it two days later, visited soon after -- and remained ever since.

All that, and he blessed the altar too. (The story of the altar is here on the blog.)

Update: I nearly forgot to add: for one of our confirmands (Sandy, shown here) this day, 10/10/10, was a "perfect 10" -- it's also her birthday!
