Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation is an affirmation of our desire to live out our baptismal identity – in Christ, with our Christian community. The ongoing power of the Holy Spirit is alive in our hearts and through the Sacrament, the grace of Baptism is deepened and gifts of the Holy Spirit are bestowed and intensified.

We desire for families to understand that Confirmation formation at Epiphany is not just a special year with a special program, but an extension of an ongoing life of faith and community in Christ.  Youth in 8th-12th grade are invited to discern Confirmation while continuing to participate in the ongoing life of their middle/high school communities.
