Saint Martin’s Church offers catechism classes to youth seeking to be confirmed in the Episcopal Church. These classes are arranged and scheduled according to the need in the parish. They are offered in the year or half year prior to the visit of one of our bishops in the Diocese of Ohio.
Confirmation is seen as a commitment to the Holy Church, administered by a bishop, which strengthens the individual for service. Preparation includes understanding the worship and teaching of the Episcopal Church, especially the Catechism contained in the Book of Common Prayer.
“I Will, With God’s Help” is our program this year. Confirmation classes will begin April 8, 2018 after the 10 am service. Anyone who is interested in being confirmed, received, reviewing their confirmation, or being a mentor to a confirmand, please contact Anna Sutterisch. Classes will meet every Sunday from 11:15-12:30 April 8-May 20 and August 12-September 23, before the bishop’s visit in the fall.
Confirmation will take place on Sunday, September 30, 2018 in the 10 o’clock service of Holy Eucharist. Bishop Mark Hollingsworth will be our celebrant and preacher.
