Confirmation

 

Strengthen, O Lord, your servant with your Holy Spirit; empower him for your service; and sustain him all the days of his life. Amen.

Youth Confirmation

According to the Prayer Book (p. 412), the Sacrament of Confirmation is meant to be “a mature public affirmation of their faith” after due preparation.  It is now generally agreed that the Sacrament of Confirmation should be administered at an older age than has been the custom in the past, with the consensus emerging throughout the Episcopal Church that “mature” means young adulthood, the 10th through 12th grade. 

In order to be a candidate for Confirmation, one must be baptized, active in worship, and participating in the life of the parish on a regular basis.  Youth Confirmation is conducted every 2 years. 

The next Youth Confirmation class will be in the spring of 2014.

Adult Confirmation

Preparation will take place in the spring of 2013 during the regular 9:00 am Sunday morning adult Christian Education class.
