Sacramental preparation for Confirmation typically begins during the middle school grades (78). A child can receive Confirmation during their eighth grade year if they are attending a formal religious education program (SOR) or attending a Catholic school and have the recommendation by the Director of Confirmation and Father Craig.
Our Confirmation program has a separate enrollment form that must be completed. Two retreats and a Rite of Enrollment are scheduled throughout the year to help prepare the Candidate and their Sponsor, and are in addition to the regular religious education classes through Sacred Heart School or School of Religion. The actual Confirmation date is scheduled by the Archdiocese and is typical released to the parishes in late October.
