Confirmation class is open to all students in 7th grade. Our Confirmation 2016-17 class will have its first meeting on Oct. 2 with a celebration of Confirmation on June 4, 2017! Classes will meet on Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m.

During last year’s confirmation classes, I noticed that mentors were not involved as much as the confirmands prefer. To make it more convenient for all involved, I have included three sessions for the mentors to meet with their confirmands. Furthermore, I will ask the mentors to consider teaching one of the sessions. Last year, one of the most memorable lessons was taught by Mrs. Jamie Loving!

The schedule also includes ‘make-up’ sessions throughout the year because there are many conflicts with sports and other activities. Previously we allowed three absences but that was not a satisfying solution because the student still missed valuable lessons needed for confirmation. These make-up sessions coupled with mindful coordination with the Fairfax County Public School schedule should make it possible for confirmands to participate in most of the classes.
