Online Youth Confirmation Classes

Episcopal young people are invited to join regional youth missioners Beckett Leclaire (Eastern Youth Region) and the Rev. Joel Turmo (Southern Youth Region) for an opportunity to participate in a free youth-focused, online confirmation class as preparation for diocesan confirmation services next year. 

Youth entering 7th-12th grades who are unable to participate in confirmation classes in their home congregation are invited to participate in a weekly one-hour online Zoom class every Sunday afternoon from 4-5pm beginning September 18th and running through Lent 2023. Specific dates are included below.

To begin this journey together, three in-person “kick-off” events will be held simultaneously around the Mitten so that caregivers and youth can get to know some of their fellow students and learn about how the program will run. Additionally, all caregivers will have the opportunity to meet via Zoom with the instructors beforehand via Zoom on September 7th, time TBD.

This class is not meant to replace local confirmation classes. Communities not able to offer a class targeted to youth confirmands are encouraged to share this opportunity with their young members.

With questions, please contact Beckett Leclaire, Youth Missioner for the Eastern Youth Region,  or the Rev. Joel Turmo, Youth Missioner for the Southern Youth Region. 


There is no cost to participate in this formation series or the kick-off events. Please register HERE by September 1st.
