Confirmation Registration Open

Registration is now open for our 2017 Confirmation class, which begins in January. This annual class is an important milestone in the faith journey of our students, and gives them dedicated time to learn about their faith in depth and in a safe space where they can have their questions answered. It is open to all of our students in 6th grade and up, and we are also always looking for adults to be confirmation mentors. If you need more information, see our Confirmation page - or if you're ready to sign up, register here.
