Sacrament of Confirmation

"Suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind,
and it filled the entire house in which they were.
And they were all filled with the holy Spirit."  Acts 2:2,4

 

High School Confirmation (10th, 11th or 12th Grades)

 

During this time of year, things begin to get hectic and schedules tend to fill up with school and family obligations. It is during these times that we sometimes forget one of the most important things to focus on, our relationship with God.

 

Some of you may be wondering if you are ready to begin a journey like this. If we waited until we were completely ready and everything was absolutely clear, would the journey be exciting or would it even happen at all?

 

You are being invited on a journey to "come and see." A community of youth is forming here in our parish to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. These youth will "come and see" how they have a community with each other in which they can learn and grow in faith — grounded in the Eucharist, in prayer, in service and in our unity as Roman Catholics. They will come together to see the beauty and blessings in their lives through faith.

 

You will find all of the registration paperwork for the 2018-19 Confirmation Program, along with the calendar of events for our high school youth this fall available for downloading and printing (click on the links below).

If you decide that it is not yet the time, do not fear; there will be other opportunities. If you would like to "come and see," please attend one (1) of the Confirmation Orientation meetings:

 

When:

Sunday, September 9th or September 16th (choose one)

Where:

Sacred Heart School Library/Media Center

Time:

After the 5:00 PM Mass

 

The registration fee for the 2018-19 year is $165.00. This covers textbooks, classroom supplies, food and drink, retreat expenses, and much more throughout the school year. It also covers keeping the facilities clean and functional. If you need to discuss the monetary fee for Confirmation, please contact us by phone or email. Financial hardship will not be a reason for someone to be unable to be confirmed; however, please discuss the same with us so that we can help.
