On the third Sunday of Advent, Bishop Stephen London confirmed two young people, Brandon Allan James Squires and Alyssa Elizabeth Squires (a brother and his sister), at Emmanuel Anglican Church in Gibbons.

In the summer of 2020, when James Squires expressed an interest in having his grandchildren baptised and confirmed, rector the Rev. Anthony Kwaw organised and delivered eight baptism and confirmation lessons online through Zoom.

Kwaw invited Bishop Steve for the confirmation, on December 12, when provincial health regulations around COVID-19 made it possible to resume public worship at Emmanuel. Brandon and Alyssa were baptised on the second Sunday of Advent before the arrival of the Bishop the following week. Submitted by the Rev. Anthony Kwaw, rector, Emmanuel, Gibbons
