Confirmation

About Confirmation

Confirmation is a sacramental rite by which we express a mature commitment to Christ and receive strength from the Holy Spirit through prayer and the laying-on of hands by the bishop.

At Holy Spirit Verona, we delight in welcoming you to prepare for confirmation. We promise to do all in our power not only to make your confirmation a joyous event, but also to support you in your life in Christ.

For specific information on scheduled classes, please contact Fr. Jerry.

What if I was confirmed already?

Those who were confirmed previously in another Christian faith tradition (such as Roman Catholic or Lutheran) and want to formally join the Episcopal Church may elect to "be received" in a very similar rite, often conducted concurrently with confirmations.
