The Rite of Confirmation plays an important role in the life of St. Matthew’s and in the life of our young people.  Each year, St. Matthew’s prepares a group of energetic eighth graders for Episcopal Confirmation.  The program starts in the September and finishes in June.  Each month, there is one evening meeting where we discuss the finer elements of the faith.  Our classes range in size from twelve to twenty. Weekly Sunday attendance during the Confirmation year is expected as is some participation from parents. For more information, contact the Rev. Susan Wyper and fill out the Confirmation Application Form.  Please see the Confirmation Class schedule for 2015-16 for more information.
