Youth Bishop Ceremony

Website

The selection of a youth bishop (either a boy bishop or a girl bishop) is held on the church’s patronal festival, December 6th. The new bishop receives gifts brought by children and adults of the parish. In his response he states that the gifts will be given to children who need them, including children at a women’s shelter. The youth bishop serves for one year.
