Confirmation Service

7PM | Wednesday, May 19, 2021 | 640 W Irving Park Road 

At 7PM on May 19th we will be having Immanuel’s first ever confirmation service! Bishop Stewart Ruch will lead this service, which will include a confirmation ceremony and Eucharistic meal.

Members of Immanuel have been prepared for confirmation through our nine-month “Strengthened in the Spirit” course, and we encourage everyone who is a part of Immanuel to witness this sacramental rite, in person or via livestream. (No registration is required for this service.)

What is confirmation? From the Book of Common Prayer: “In confirmation, through the Bishop’s laying on of hands and prayer for daily increase of the Holy Spirit, God strengthens the believer for Christian life in the service of Christ and his kingdom.” Scroll down to learn more about confirmation at Immanuel Anglican Church.

Strengthened in the Spirit

Confirmation at Immanuel | 2020-2021


Note: Registration has closed for the 2020-2021 Confirmation Course. 

You may well be asking yourself, “what exactly is confirmation and why should I be excited about it?”

There’s a big clue right inside the word “confirm”–which means to make firm (or strengthen) together. The confirmation process is designed to strengthen you in your relationship with God and to strengthen you in your relationship with the church. This process culminates in a sacramental rite when our Bishop, Stewart Ruch, will lay hands on you and pray for the Holy Spirit to be released more fully in your life for mission and ministry.

This confirmation course is for current members of Immanuel (or those planning to pursue membership by attending the Intro to Immanuel course) who desire to strengthen their relationship with God, strengthen their relationship with the church and receive more of the Holy Spirit for mission and ministry.
