Blessing of the Books & Prayer Beads for Confirmands!

On Trinity Sunday, May 31, 2015, the congregation of St. Barnabas recognized the 2015 eight Confirmation Class members and leaders as well as the 6 young people who were confirmed at Christ Church Cathedral, Ottawa, ON on Sunday May 24th, 2015 by the Right Reverend John Chapman, Bishop of Ottawa.

These photos were taken at during the 10:00 a.m. service on Trinity Sunday.  Our Rector, the Reverend Fran├žois Trottier, and our wardens, Wayne Kirby and Bob Cleland, along with the youth of our parish, blessed the Bibles, Books of Alternative Services, and Anglican Prayer Beads as gifts to all members of the confirmation class on behalf of our parish.
