One of the traditional rites of the Episcopal Church is Confirmation, a service in which the candidate is asked by the bishop to “confirm” their baptismal vows. In order to prepare Confirmands for this important step in their life of faith, they will complete a series of classes designed to help lead them into a more mature expression of their faith.

In the Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina, confirmands should reach 16 years of age before they are confirmed, though exceptions may be granted for some younger members.

If you are interested in Confirmation for yourself or your teenager, please speak to Martha McDade, catechist, or to the Rector for more information.
