confirmation news version

Twenty-One people were either confirmed, received or reaffirmed at Christ Church during Bishop Benhase’s visit on January 10th.  There was a full house to greet them into the church as overflow parking spilled into Father Dave’s backyard and ushers were forced to bring in chairs to the annex to seat them all.
