Youth Confirmation

The sacrament of Confirmation is an adult commitment to a life of Christian faith in the Episcopal Church. We need to be prepared to discern whether this is the right commitment, and the right time. We need to know what we're promising!  So, a group convenes every other year to explore the meaning of Confirmation, and to support each other in discovering--each one of us for him/herself--whether or not we are called to seek and receive this sacrament.

This group is formed every other year, and meets (roughly) twice each month, from September through April. We learn and teach and serve, in real life and online. This is a covenanted group: each member commits to attend and engage, to take each other seriously, and to stick together all the way to our last meeting. 

The 2013-2014 Youth Confirmation Group convenes on September 22, 2013 at Grace Cathedral, 9:30-10:30 am. We will gather as a group for the last time on April 13, 2014, 9:30-10:30 a.m., at Grace Cathedral. Parents and sponsors will join our final gathering to listen: as each participant teaches us about the piece of Scripture s/he has chosen and studied.

It is our goal that all participants will be well prepared to discern for themselves whether or not they are called to seek and receive the sacrament of Confirmation on June 7, 2014, or at a later date.
