Dear Pastor:

I am grateful for the accomplishments of your confirmands! This preparation is just the beginning of their Christian journey. I pray that they will continue to experience the joy of the journey as they deepen their commitment to Jesus Christ.

As you know, this year’s Annual Conference will be held June 5 to June 8 at Hofstra University. I am inviting all confirmands to be my special guests on Saturday, June 8. Details are listed below:

What to expect on Saturday:
• Arrive at the Mack Arena (Hofstra University) no later than 9:00AM
• Wear a solid color – any color is OK
• You will receive a sash to wear indicating that you are participating in the Ordination Service
