Calling young people aged 13-17 – come prepare to be confirmed with 7 sessions exploring the Christian faith, the meaning of your baptism, and God's call upon your life. To be confirmed is to say YES to the YES of God already spoken to you through the waters of baptism, and to be empowered by the Holy Spirit at work in and through your life.

We will use the The Pilgrim Way as a base for our conversations, and explore our faith together.

Please send a note to the rector at david [at] stmatthiasedmonton.ca with questions or to sign up. First full session is Saturday December 18.
