The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Youth Confirmation

What is Confirmation?

Confirmation, according to the Catechism, 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. It is when a person makes the decision to take ownership of the promises made by their parents, Godparents, and grandparents at their baptism, in order to live out their Baptismal Covenant.

What is required for Confirmation?

At the Cathedral, we encourage Confirmation during the 8th grade year, and our 8th-grade Sunday school curriculum is a confirmation curriculum. All youth are invited to participate in the Confirmation Program if they feel ready, so long as they are at least in 8th grade. Those wishing to participate in the Confirmation Program are asked to prayerfully commit to attend classes during the spring semester, participate in small group discussions during that time, attend the Confirmation Retreat, complete the Confirmation journal questions every week, and be an active member at the Cathedral. Participation in the Confirmation service is not required.
