Confirmation Class

07 Jan 2018 | 10:45 am - 12:45 pm

Confirmation: The sacramental rite when candidates “express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop” (BCP, p. 860).

I am delighted to report that St. Thomas’ has at least eight youth who will be journeying along that path, over the next few months. It is a journey we hope our youth will find to be both challenging and rewarding. We will be using a program called Confirm not Conform.  CnC is focused on helping young people ask tough questions and search out the answers. Through interactive sessions, a field trip and service project, and the challenge to do a whole lot more than just learn a few facts, CnC lets youth take real responsibility for under-standing their faith and its power. When they do—when they see the church and faith as something that truly belongs to them—it builds a bond that lasts.

Our confirmation group begins work on Sunday, October 15th at 10:45 am. Each session will last approximately 60 minutes. If you have a youth who is ready to be confirmed, please join us. The service of confirmation will take place on Sunday, March 18, 2018 and the iConfirm service and celebration will be on April 8, 2018.
