Confirmation

Confirmation preparation begins with a Parent/Confirmandi meeting each fall. We began a two year program in the Fall of 2019 with our next Confirmation taking place in the Spring of 2021. However, anyone beginning 9th grade through 12th grade is now eligible to register for Year 1, with Confirmation to take place in 2022. 

The 2020-2021 Kick-Off Meeting for both returning and new students will be Wednesday, September 16th from 6:30-8pm.  There will be both in-person and virtual preparation options offered.

 

The registration process is the same for Year 1 (new) and Year 2 (returning) students and is now open:

Register Here

 

Year 1 students will generally meet on the 2nd and 3rd Wednesday of the month, and Year 2 students will generally meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month. There are some exceptions to this throughout the year and a full calendar will be shared at the kick-off meeting or via email for those who register. All meetings take place in the Gathering Space from 6:30pm - 8:00pm.
