The sacrament of confirmation signals a personal commitment to take responsibility for one’s own baptism; through it, we are strengthened to participate in Christ’s mission in and for the world. Confirmation class at St. Mark’s, then, is designed to give potential confirmands all the information (and formation) they need to make a healthy and holy decision regarding whether or not to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church. 8th grade is typically when youth participate in confirmation, but if youth and their parents believe that they are ready to attend classes at another age, we are very happy to discuss making accommodations. If you would like to discuss the possibility of your child joining this year's class, please contact Fr. Justin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 203-966-4515 x105.
