Youth Confirmation is for 8th grade youth and any high school students who would like to be confirmed. The class will meet for seven weeks throughout the winter and spring during the 10.10am formation hour. The youth will be led in discussion of topics including: church history, the sacraments, becoming a young adult, the community of the church, and living a life of faith. Students are allowed to miss only two classes. Class dates are as follows: February 9, 16, 23, March 1, 8, 22, and May 3. Students will be expected to participate in the Day of Prayer and Service on Sunday, March 29, attend a dinner with the Bishop during the week prior to confirmation, and meet for a rehearsal for confirmation Saturday, May 30. Confirmation will be held on Pentecost Sunday during the 10.00am Eucharist on Sunday, May 31. This year confirmands, along with youth who have been confirmed in the past, are invited to attend a retreat April 17-19 to renew our faith, reflect on the lessons we have learned from class, and take our faith outside of the church walls.
Images of the Divine in Film
Friday, January 24
Youth Suite (3rd Floor)
God can be experienced in varied and unusual ways, and we often find images of the Holy in media and film. This class will be an experiential one in which we will share dinner, view films together, and discuss. We will meet three times during the program year on Friday nights. A variety of films will be a part of the curriculum, with the emphasis on images and experiences of the Holy.
Stay tuned for the movie title! Please RSVP for this event online.
