Confirmation is both foundational & formational for a student’s faith journey. It provides deep knowledge of the Christian faith that opens up a new way of understanding. In addition, it gives the student an opportunity to own faith unlike ever before. Confirmation classes run from mid-September through the beginning of March. Classes are offered on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:45 a.m. and are open to students 8th grade and up. Click HERE for additional information about Confirmation.
