Confirmation is a declaration of acceptance of your baptism and the desire to take ownership of your faith in Jesus Christ. This is a time in which youth and families have the opportunity to know and deepen their faith and listen to God’s call in our lives. It is also an integral part of the spiritual journey in which God, your family, our congregation, and the Hastings community all play a role. 

The St. Philip's confirmation program is structured as a three-year program beginning in the fall of seventh grade and culminating in a formal confirmation service during the fall of tenth grade.  Weekly classes are offered on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. during the school year.
