Confirmations and Receptions

Confirmation is a mature commitment to the Christian faith, reaffirming the promises that you made, or that were made for you, at your baptism. If you have not yet been confirmed, or if you are the parent of a child who is at least twelve years old whom you would like to be confirmed, please let our clergy know. We plan our confirmation class for the youth and a class for adult confirmands, and those who would like the Bishop to receive them formally into the Episcopal Church, based upon how many are interested. If you have questions about this next step in your life of faith, ask the clergy.
