"In the course of their Christian development, those baptized at an early age are expected, when they are ready and have been duly prepared, to make a mature and public affirmation of their faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism and to receive the laying on of hands by the bishop." – Book of Common Prayer, p. 412
Online registrations for Confirmation Services are completed by clergy-in-charge (or warden/s in the absence of clergy). Registrations for 2018 Confirmation will open on July 26 and close on October 17. Each congregation must select a first and second choice of Confirmation service date and give the total number and full information for all the Confirmands, both youth and adult. Incomplete registrations will not be processed.
What constitutes a complete registration?
In addition to the required fields for Church Information, the following information is required for each candidate:
- Full name as it should appear on the Confirmation Certificate
- Denomination at Baptism
- Date of birth
- School grade (for youth), or indicate adult
- If youth, parent/guardian name(s)
- Contact email, phone and address
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis, with the number of Confirmands being strictly held to a maximum of 60 per service in 2018. Names received after the final deadline of October 17 will be assigned to a service as space allows.
Youth must be in 8th grade or higher to be eligible for Confirmation.
