Internet Confirmations

A Church of Sweden minister in southern Sweden has found a new way to reach young people in the Internet age: online confirmations.

In the Lutheran former state church, confirmation precedes the first communion, and preparatory summer camps for teens are popular here. Pastor Henrik Lidén in Karlskrona is offering Internet courses to prepare, although some face to face meetings will be required.

The final ceremony and communion will still be held as usual in church.
