Confirmation is the adult profession of faith of the vows made at Baptism. Confirmation is administered by a bishop by the laying on of hands in the context of Sunday Eucharist. If one was confirmed in another denomination (Lutheran, Roman Catholic, Methodist, etc), he or she would be received into the Episcopal Church by the bishop. A person who was confirmed at a younger age may wish to reaffirm his or her vows.
When a young person (usually 13, 14, or 15 years old) is ready to take on those vows, he or she should inform the Director of Youth Ministries and fill out the Youth Confirmation Registration Form.
The Confirmation Experience is offered during the Spring semester and includes:
- A kickoff retreat in late January
- An adult mentor
- Classes every week during the Sunday School hour taught by Director of Youth Ministries, Mother Pat, and other church leaders
- Involvement in worship, youth group, service, and outreach at St. Aidan’s
Confirmation for adults is offered periodically. Please contact Mother Pat for more information at [email protected] or 770-521-0207.
