Holy confirmation by Bishop

Right Reverend David Hamid (centre) came to Luz on December 12, the third Sunday of Advent, to confirm six candidates into the Anglican Church.

Vows were taken by the candidates as a declaration of their intent to love a life of responsible discipleship and were confirmed by the laying on of hands by Bishop Hamid, the Bishop of the Diocese of Europe.

A sixth candidate, originally confirmed a Roman Catholic, was also received by Bishop Hamid and all those who were involved celebrated after the service with a lunch held at the home of Jennifer and Eckart Flöether.
