Fourteen young people were confirmed in the Christian Faith at Our Savior's Lutheran Church, Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), on Sunday, May 31, 1953. Robed in white gowns and carrying blue New Testaments, a gift to them from the congregation, they came forward to kneel for their vows individually. They will receive their first Communion at the morning worship service next Sunday.

Confirmation followed a period of instruction in the fundamentals of the Christian faith, Luther's Small Catechism and the New Testament, concentrating on the Gospel of St. John. They have been meeting Saturday mornings for instruction with the Rev. M.S. Egge, Pastor of Our Savior's Lutheran Church.

On Friday evening Catechization was held for the class, at which public testimony was made of their instruction before the assemble congregation. Members of the confirmation class were: Ronald Gen Boeck, Dale Leonard Johnson, Otto Kind Jr., Norman Leroy Olson, Norbert Ross Olson, James Arthur Turnquist, Blanche Jean Clouse, Shirley Jean Johnson, Janette Lenore Deegan, Rose Maria Deegan, Darlene Yvonne Haupt, Marganne Elizabeth Kolbo, Yvonne Christine Jackson and Joanne Muriel Jackson.
