In the Anglican Church of Canada, baptized children may be admitted to Holy Communion as provided in the August 1977 Memorial to the House of Bishops. In our diocese, Bishop’s Directive 3.1.2 outlines the process and requirements. We’ll be offering “Life in the Eucharist” in the fall of 2017 for children (aged 7 and older) and parents of those who wish to participate. Children making Communion is an option and by no means required. Read the Pastoral Vision for “Life in the Eucharist.” An information meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, 06 September at 7:00 p.m.. Programme sessions are tentatively scheduled for six Wednesdays, 6-7:30 p.m. beginning 11 October 2017. Questions? speak to Kurt Schmidt <formation at christchurchcathedral.com> or the Dean <dean at christchurchcathedral.com>.
