Question: What is confirmation?

Answer: Confirmation is the rite in which we express a mature commitment to Christ, and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying on of hands by a bishop. ~The Catech

The 2011-2012 Youth Confirmation Class has been working hard with Mother Rebecca and a number of guest speakers since September to learn about the Baptismal Covenant and the promises they would be making to the Bishop. The class has studied the Catechism, Prayer Book, Creeds, read the Gospel of Luke, kept a journal, and covered the areas of Sacraments, Church History, Prayer, and Service and Outreach. In March the class served food to the hungry at the Trinity Hot Lunch in the Central West End and this spring the group attended a Confirmation Retreat together.

Two adult members from Grace also participated in the May 19 Confirmation Service. Congratulations to Becky Coulter and Jean Heimos for making their commitment to Christ.
