The catechism describes confirmation as "the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop." Our confirmation program for youth runs from September through May, concluding with the bishop's visit at the 8:45am service in May. Our youth traditionally prepare for confirmation in the 7th grade, but we welcome older students who have not yet been confirmed.
As with other sacraments such as baptism, weddings, and funerals, confirmation is for families who are members of St. George's. We encourage other youth to be confirmed in their home congregations. At least one parent needs to be a member of St. George's prior to registering their child for confirmation. If you are interested in membership, please contact the youth staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
