Preparing Families for Baptism Workshop

Registration Opens
Anna Ostenso-Moore

Join the Rev. Anna Ostenso Moore and fellow learners for our next Faith Formation Workshop: Preparing Families for Baptism!

What do you believe about baptism? How do you “prepare” adults and parents of children to participate in this sacrament? As a group we will focus on these questions and more. We will explore how what you believe about baptism shapes your baptism preparation ministry. We will look at different preparation models and resources. And we will apply our learnings to your current faith community.

The videoconference will include online presentations, large group conversation, small group reflection and personal reflection. There will be breaks for rejuvenation and lunch.

This workshop requires some pre-reading. Details coming soon!

The Rev. Anna V. Ostenso Moore found the Episcopal Church as a teenager. Sitting by the side of a lake in Northern Minnesota after college graduation, she felt a call to faith formation grounded in community, wonder, Holy mystery, and our Sacred Stories. That call has led her across the Atlantic Ocean and back. She is author of the picture books “Today is a Baptism Day” and “We Gather at This Table,” inspired by the beauty of the families with whom she works. Her educational background includes a BA in Chinese International Studies from Middlebury College, Vermont and an MA in Youth Ministry and Theological Education from King’s College, London. She has served at churches in Surrey, UK and Minnesota. She is currently on the Episcopal Church in Minnesota’s Racial Justice and Healing Formation Team. 

Wife, mother, priest, daughter, sister, aunt, godparent, and friend, her greatest joys include her toddler’s laugh, a good pot of tea with her husband David, and dancing at every opportunity.
