Confirmation


Sealed with the Spirit

Confirmation is the beginning of a person’s life as a fully initiated Catholic.

Confirmation is the third Sacrament of Initiation, completing what was begun at Baptism, and continued with the reception of First Eucharist.

  • In order to be a Godparent or a Sponsor in the Catholic Church, a person must be a fully initiated & practicing Catholic and have received the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation
  • Those children enrolled in Sacred Heart’s Religious Education Program and are following the standard sequence of religion classes, will receive Confirmation at the end of the 8th Year of religious instruction.
  • Children also come into our program as catechumens (not baptized) and candidates (baptism only). We deal with the sacramental needs of these children who are out of the standard sequence on a case by case basis.
  • For children in the 7th Grade or older: Go to our RCIA for Teens page.
  • We also work with children with Special Needs to receive Confirmation.

There are important meetings for the parents/guardians of those students receiving Confirmation. Check the calendar you receive at registration for exact dates and times. Special meetings will be announced.

All Confirmation candidates are required to attend class, complete all homework assignments, to attend Mass every Sunday and Holy Day of Obligation, to fill out a Mass Reflection Sheet each week, and to complete 20 hours of community service. Those who cannot fulfill all the program requirements are welcome to repeat their Confirmation instruction until they are able to do so.

Confirmation Candidates in their 8th year of religious instruction must attend 6 proximate preparation meetings accompanied by a parent or sponsor. These meetings will be scheduled once a month after the 7th & 8th Grade/Level 9:30 AM Mass. Meetings will be held in the Church Basement in October, November, December, January, February and March. Attendance and participation in the proximate preparation meetings are the only requirement for 8th Year Candidates. Only ONE ABSENCE is allowed. More than one missed meeting will require the candidate to continue his/her preparation into the next year to attend missed proximate preparation meetings before receiving the sacrament of Confirmation.
