A bishop comes to visit a congregation for many reasons—a parish celebration,
baptism, confirmation, or a pastoral visit. With black and white illustrations, this
interactive book for children and families describes the ministry of a bishop, including
symbols and apparel, in preparation for the visit and worship. Confirmands will find
this new book particularly helpful as it walks them through the liturgy of Confirmation.
During the actual Confirmation rite, children will have a guide to follow along during
the service, making this book serve multiple purposes for young and old alike.
• For use by churches during a bishop’s visitations
• A resource guide for educators, parents, and families
• For audiences who have enjoyed Anne Kitch’s “What We Do in Church” books
