Through the Sacrament of Baptism we are adopted as God's children and become members of Christ's body and the Church.
On the Saturday preceding the scheduled baptism, St. Paul's holds a class led by one of our Baptismal Counselors. These counselors are parents and members of the congregation who meet with all participants in the baptism to explain the logistics of the ceremony and to help parents and godparents fully understand the significance of their intention to support the child by prayer and example in their Christian life.
In keeping with the Episcopal tradition of confirming one's faith in community with other believers, Youth Confirmation Classes offer students a chance to more fully understand what a commitment of faith really means.
Our Youth Confirmation Classes occur each spring, with 6 weeks of class and an overnight retreat. The confirmation service is typically held the Sunday after Easter.
The next round of our Youth Confirmation Program will be in the spring of 2020. Email Katie May for more info.
