Confirmation is a time of formal, pastor-led instruction for our middle school members. Our confirmands become more familiar with our faith, ask questions about it, and especially make it their own. At Divine Savior, instruction centers around Martin Luther’s Small Catechism for our 7th and 8th grade students. 6th graders learn about the Bible.
We deliver confirmation instruction in a retreat format. This school year, those retreats are September 16-17, 2022, November 11-12, 2022, and February 3-4,, 2023. Students engage the material at home with some pre-retreat work, receive instruction from our pastors at the retreats, then meet with their parents and one of our pastors after the retreat.
The Rite of Confirmation is usually celebrated on Palm Sunday.
