Confirmation in the Episcopal Church is "the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop." (Book of Common Prayer, p. 860) Our Confirmation program is designed for those in 9th grade and above who are interested in publicly re-affirming their baptismal vows. This is a two year program that focuses on both learning and doing.
The first year involves choosing a mentor from the congregation to be a guide throughout the process and taking part in a minsitry internship as well as fulfilling other specified requirements. In the second year, a team of clergy and lay volunteers lead a class where we examine the basics of the Christian Faith making room for prayer, reflection, and questioning.
