What To Write In A Confirmation Card

If you’re trying to find the right wording for a confirmation card to a young loved one, we’re here to help. We’ve broken down the process to write a perfect letter. And it all starts with finding the right religious celebration card. Once you have a card, follow the steps below. 

  1. Pick a Greeting. First things first, make sure to find an appropriate greeting to start your card. You can keep things simple with “Congratulations [name],” or Dear [name],” or include a more personalized greeting, like those listed in the section below.
  2. Include Confirmation Congratulations. Tell them how proud of them you are or remind them of a fond memory you have involving them and their faith.
  3. Pass on Helpful Advice. Do you have any advice for them as they grow in their faith? This is a chance to pass it down to them.
  4. Include Well-Wishes or a Blessing. You may also want to include a favorite piece of scripture or a small prayer for your loved one.
  5. Pick a Sign off. Once you’ve finished the letter, make sure to choose an appropriate sign off before your signature. Sign-offs may include “Sincerely,” “Truly,” “Warmly,” “Yours,” “With Love,” and “Best Wishes,” followed by your name.

Confirmation Greetings

Greetings are important because they set the tone for the remainder of your card. Picking the right greeting depends on the overall tone of your letter, as well as sticking to an appropriate title for the addressee. Common greetings include:

  • “Dear [Name],”
  • “To [Name],”
  • “For [Name,”
  • Or simply, “[Name],”

You may also choose to write “Congratulations [Name]!” if you’re aiming to start the card with a more upbeat tone. It’s also important to note that with younger recipients, it’s considered appropriate to address them by the first name, or by Miss/Mr. [Name].
