Find Lots of Help With Your Religious Confirmation Invitation Wording Etiquette

A religious Confirmation is the Christian rite of a person to make a total commitment to the church after being introduced to it through a Baptism. An example of the relationship to a Confirmation and Baptism is like the Baptism is accepting a marriage proposal, while the Confirmation is the wedding. A Confirmation is usually celebrated with family members and close friends, but, according to suggested Confirmation invitations etiquette, your personalized invitation wordings should be more formal than the invite wordings of a casual party. Read on for lots of helpful suggestions for ensuring your etiquette for Confirmation invitations appreciated by all those who receive them.

Begin Your Confirmation Invitations Wordings with an Appropriate Verse or Saying

CA_CAN9352It is the custom to begin with a fitting Bible verse to set a reverent and celebrative mood. An example might be 2 Corinthians 5:17: ‘If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come’! Or, another example is the more general Psalm 118:24: ‘Today is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it’. If the person being confirmed was asked to memorize a verse in the Bible part of the Confirmation process, you might consider using that verse instead.

Ensure Your Invite Wordings are Written in Formal Format

Most likely this will include either the person being confirmed parents, godparents, sponsor, or maybe even a combination of these. Next, you will want to include the actual invitation request. An example might be, ‘Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Porter invite you to witness the Confirmation of their daughter Elise’ or ‘Mr. Sidney Porter invites you to witness the Confirmation of his godson Johnny’.

Examples for Words, Verses, and Sayings

CA_CAF6325Each phrase of the invite should be written on a separate line with no punctuation at the end of each line. An example follows:

  • Mr. and Mrs. Sidney Porter OR Mrs. Sarah Davidson and Mr. Sidney Porter if parents have different last names
  • request the honor of your presence
  • at the Confirmation of their son
  • Jonathan
  • Sunday, the fifth of June
  • at two o’clock in the afternoon
  • two thousand twenty
  • name of the church
  • street address, city, full name of the state
  • type of celebration party and location – For example, write, ‘Brunch will be served at the Porter residence,’ followed by the full address. OR, ‘A reception will be held immediately following the ceremony’ at the address may be more appropriate if a full meal will not be served.
