An outdoor service, participants at EcoConfirmation will uphold their baptismal vow to “cherish the wondrous works of God, and protect the beauty and integrity of all creation.” Together, the community will recommit itself to the fifth mark of mission: “to strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth.”

This year’s EcoConfirmation will be at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, nestled within the Port of Oakland. The service will include a reflection on our relationship to the bay, the fossil fuels that power the cargo ships in the port, and a dedication for those who have taken the Pledge to Care for Creation.

All Saints parishioners Janet & Russell Gebhardt and Kathleen Glassley will be Received at this ceremony.
