The Cathedral of St. Philip - Atlanta, GA

Youth Confirmation Starts Soon

Confirmation 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. 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. The Confirmation program begins January 11-13 with a retreat to Camp Mikell and continues throughout the semester during the Sunday School hour. Those who choose to be confirmed will participate in the Confirmation service on April 28. Please contact Maggie Paul, mpaul@cathedralATL.org, if you are interested in registering your youth in the Confirmation program.
