Confirmation

Giving

Successful clothing drive for CityReach

We invite you to explore our confirmation program for 8th graders.  Throughout the year our students learn about themselves, their faith, and about serving others. At the end of the 8 month program, students are confirmed at a special service by one of our bishops. Students decide for themselves whether they are ready to confirm their faith.

What does it mean to make a commitment to the Christian faith and the Episcopal Church? We use the “My Faith, My Life” book and curriculum as our guide.  Together, we explore topics of Christian responsibility and how our culture relates to Christianity.  We also talk about prayer, worship, scripture, the structure of the Episcopal Church, and church history. During discussions, our adult leaders strive to support, challenge and empower students as they explore their faith and its meaning to them as individuals.

Expectations of confirmation students?

  • Regular attendance at worship services beginning in September
  • Participation in CityReach, an overnight service project, where students learn from and serve people who live on the streets of Boston
  • Participation in the overnight retreat (at the Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center) to prepare for their confirmation
  • Attendance and active participation in Sunday evening classes held in March and April
