Confirmation

St. Luke’s gathers a group of young people for confirmation every other year.  It has been our custom to gather 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th grade students to participate in the Confirmation process entitled I Will, With God’s Help.

Confirmation

The Regional Confirmation for the Episcopal Church in Minnesota is held annually at the Cathedral of Our Merciful Saviour in Faribault.

Come down, O Love divine, seek thou this soul of mine,

And visit it with thine own ardor glowing;

O Comforter draw near, within my heart appear,

And kindle it, thy holy flame bestowing;

And so the yearning strong, with which the soul will long,

Shall far out pass the power of human telling;

For none can guess its grace, till Love create a place 

Wherein the Holy Spirit makes a dwelling.

These verses are from the hymn in The Hymnal 1982…# 516…Down Ampney is the tune…Come down, O love divine…invoking…describing the gifting of the Holy Spirit!

People from various Faith Communities throughout the Episcopal Church in Minnesota, gather to reaffirm their Baptismal Promises in the rites of Confirmation, Reception and Reaffirmation.  Candidates meet every Sunday as part of the Confirmation Process.  In these candidates meet for a Day of Retreat with their sponsors / mentors and the Catechists to listen to each others Faith Story.
