Confirmations at Grace Cathedral
In the course of Christian formation, those baptized at an early age are expected — when they are ready and have been appropriately prepared — to make a mature public affirmation of faith and commitment to the responsibilities of their Baptism, and to receive laying on of hands by the bishop. Confirmation is an intentional choice to deepen relationship with God through mature membership and increased participation in the church community. For youth being confirmed, confirmation often marks the point at which one moves into spiritual adulthood, usually in late middle school or in high school. The Diocese of California recommends confirmation at age 14 and older, and considers age 12 to be the minimum age for youth confirmation.
This joy-filled service begins at 10 am and usually lasts about 2 hours. Families from across the diocese gather to celebrate this milestone.
We are excited to have several of our young people being confirmed at this event. All are welcome to come support them!
