2023 Confirmation at Saint Albans

2023 Confirmation Information Form

Please fill in as much information as you can!

Please enter your name exactly as you'd like it to appear on both your official certificate, and in parish sacramental and historical record-keeping.
Those confirmed under the age of 19 are eligible for a youth mission trip grant from the Diocese of Virginia that can be applied to a future mission endeavor. Those 26 and over who are baptized by a Bishop are considered both baptized and confirmed.
If previous baptism is unknown, the Prayer Book offers a "conditional baptism" which ensures the completion of the sacrament, but does not replace the previous baptism if it indeed happened. (The Lord knows, and that's the important part!)
If you're not previously baptized, enter N/A.
If an unaffiliated Christian church, enter "non-denominational." (A defining characteristic of Christian baptism is the Trinitarian formula: baptized "in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit." Some small sects, and larger groups like the LDS, do not follow this practice.)
If you're able to provide a certificate of baptism or confirmation readily, it doesn't hurt to do so. If it is difficult to access those records, fill in the information as accurately as you can.
If not applicable, enter N/A.
If not applicable, enter N/A.
The Sponsor has an important role to play; both in terms of supporting you through prayer, and also standing with you at the altar rail before the Bishop. The Sponsor also "presents" you to the Bishop. If your Sponsor is unable to attend, a member of the clergy will be available to stand in their stead.
