confirmations

The purpose of this program is to invite youth (Grade 8+) and adults, currently involved with St. Andrew’s River Heights United Church, to join an intentional process of faith formation.

This will involve exploring, affirming and claiming faith in a journey that is both individual and part of a group. The program may, or may not, lead a participant to choose confirmation, the rite of the church which signifies full membership in the congregation and The United Church of Canada. In the United Church context, confirmation means the ‘confirming’ of Baptismal vows, which were taken earlier, usually when a person was an infant or a child. Participants who are not baptized are welcome in the program – baptism will be included prior to the act of confirmation for them.

Confirmation classes are held in early spring. For more information, please contact The Rev. Karen Lumley at 204-488-1130.
