Confirmation Class of 2020
Friends in Christ:
It’s that time of the year again when we invite rising eighth graders to continue their formation and confirm their faith. For those students entering the eighth grade in the fall of 2019 (and others who have not yet confirmed and wish to do so), we hope you will join our Confirmation Class! This class will meet once a month on Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. beginning on Sunday, September 8, 2019.
Confirmation is, of course, encouraged for students, but it is NOT mandatory. Please, talk with your son or daughter about taking the class. While parents may require their children to participate, the ultimate decision to make this confirmation of faith is the student’s. We do ask that if your child is to participate, he/she miss no more than two sessions. If you feel that is not a possibility for your family, talk with me, but don’t worry. It just may not be your child’s year for Confirmation!
Parishioner Andrea Osman will closely aid me with logistics and communication with Mentors and you. There will be a few other requirements for students outside of Sunday morning classes. We ask that parents attend the first class on September 8th with your children so that we can go over all the activities surrounding Confirmation, field trips, and community and church service. We do understand that everyone has extremely busy schedules, so we want to do our very best to both accommodate your family’s needs and create a wholesome and complete Confirmation Class for the youth.
Confirmation students are also asked to select a mentor for the year. In the past the youth have chosen from various people including grandparents, godparents, older siblings, close family friends, and role models in the St. Peter’s community. A youth may not select their parent to be a mentor, but parents may serve as mentors for other youth in the class! We do prefer that mentors are Episcopalian, but again, talk with me! Responsibilities include attending two class sessions and of course Confirmation! Please send the name and contact information of your child’s mentor to Andrea Osman ( ).
Please email me at or call the office at 314-993-2306 today to confirm that your son or daughter will be participating. If they will be, please make sure you have filled out all the required forms attached to this email, and return them to the Church office, or email them to me, saving the forms titled with your last name.
I look forward to hearing from you!
