On Sunday September 10, 2017 at 3:00 PM The Right Reverend William H. Stokes, the 12th Bishop of the Diocese of New Jersey, confirmed Emma Barone (Springfield), Salvatore Brown (Westfield), Justin Bursack (Cranford), Daniel DeMarco (Cranford) & Christian Robinson (Cranford) at Trinity Episcopal Church,119 Forest Avenue, Cranford, New Jersey. “Confirmation is the opportunity for a person to make a mature public affirmation of their faith and a commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism”, said Father Andy Kruger, Trinity’s Priest-in-Charge. The confirmation ceremony follows two years of Confirmation classes led by Christy Barone (Springfield) and Vicky Cooney (Roselle Park), where candidates studied the Episcopal Church’s expression of Christian Faith through Bible study and prayer. Each candidate received the laying on of hands by Bishop Stokes. “The Confirmation process deepens one’s relationship with God,” said Father Andy.
