Confirmation – Interest Meeting Oct. 29

Confirmation is a sacramental rite where you are affirming your covenant, or promise, from Baptism that was made by your parents. Confirmation is your turn to prepare and renew or strengthen your beliefs. In Confirmation we are for God’s help in our relationship with God and the Church. There is no set time in life to be confirmed. Everyone must answer for themselves “I do”, “I believe”, and “I will with God’s help”. You church and family provide support, but it is your decision.
We will have an information session for students and parents/guardians who are interested in participating or learning more about our Confirmation program on Sunday, Oct. 29 from 10:10 to 10:50 a.m. in the All Saints’ Room (across from the reception desk). Mark your calendars and plan to join us to learn more about the Confirmation process.
