Confirmation

Our youth use Keeping The Promise which is a mentoring program for Confirmation in the Episcopal Church.

This unique program pairs each perspective Confirmand with a Confirmed adult mentor, who gives the Confirmand caring support throughout the learning process.  With the younger and older Christians working together, the common inheritance of the Christian Faith can be fully explored on a personal basis.  Teenagers connect with the traditions of the Episcopal Church and with the mentors, who create an environment that is relaxed, where confidence can grow and learning can occur.  The youth pick their mentor, complete a service activity and meet with the Rector to discuss what they have learned prior to Confirmation. 

Youth are eligible for confirmation in ninth grade.

Our first meeting for confirmation is generally held in late September or early October.
