What is confirmation?
Confirmation is a sacrament of the Anglican Church when one decides to affirm one's baptismal promises and to be confirmed in God’s love. Confirmation often takes place between the ages of 12 and 14, however, any one at any age who has been baptized may choose to be confirmed.
Confirmation at St Mary's involves a set of classes which usually run from October/November until the Diocesan confirmation services sometime around Easter (March/April).
St. Mary's Confirmation Course:
We offer a confirmation course each year to support young people through the confirmation process. The course consists of several classes - where candidates will meet with our Family Ministries clergy person and our Youth Director - and attend the Winter Retreat youth conference at Sorrento Centre as well as the Confirmation Prep Day hosted by the Diocese and Bishop. (see below for this year's course info)
If you are an adult interested in being confirmed, please contact us, and we will work together with you to find the best way to support you.
