Confirmation Exploration

Confirmation, while not a sacrament, provides an opportunity to say “Yes!” to the Christian faith as we understand it in the Anglican tradition. Under the direction of the Reverend Peter Thompson, Assistant Rector, students in the 8th grade and older are invited to explore their faith with the opportunity to decide for themselves if they wish to be Confirmed in the Episcopal Church.  Six sessions are offered over the course of the academic year covering the Bible, some Church History, Worship & Prayer, World Religions, Ethics and Faith Stories. The sessions occur on select Saturday afternoons.  Two retreats are also included: one an overnight (Friday night / Saturday) offsite retreat and one all-day Saturday onsite retreat.  Participants also meet (approximately monthly) with an adult mentor assigned to them, visit and experience worship in another faith community, and engage in a service project.
