Confirmation is a mature and thoughtful step as a part of a lifetime commitment of faith. St. Paul's offers an opportunity each year for adults and young people to prepare for this affirmation of faith.
Adult Inquirers' classes are offered each fall and spring to adults who want to prepare for Confirmation, be received into the Episcopal Church, or reaffirm their commitment to Jesus and learn more about the church. For more information, please contact the Rev. Ross Kane at 703-549-3312 x19 or
Youth Confirmation Information
Much of what we discuss in our Sunday school program and Youth Group meetings serves to prepare our youth for Confirmation. While Confirmation is largely about education and catechism, it is also an important step for any young person building a connection to St. Paul's and to the people and community found here. For those wishing to be confirmed at St. Paul's, the church offers a mandatory Confirmation retreat, Confirmation classes, and a Confirmation mentor program, all of which take place every spring. Youth are also encouraged to form a base for lasting involvement in the Church by attending Sunday school and Youth Group as regularly as possible.
Confirmation is available to those youth who wish to express a mature and adult faith. Youth should be in the spring semester of their seventh grade year or be at least 13 years old.
