Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Confirmations have been under postponement, with a short form of “Recognition and Prayers for those Awaiting Confirmation” available here, providing a pastoral option to acknowledge in the congregation those who have completed a course of preparation.

Plans are now in the works for a series of Confirmation services at locations around the diocese in August, September and October of 2021. An announcement with dates, times, locations and sign-up information will be sent out to congregational clergy in May. August services will prioritize those who are leaving the area at the end of the summer for school or military service. Those interested in receiving advance notice about registration for the August services should contact Cathedral Church of St. Paul administrator Kevin Vetiac ( as soon as possible.
