Confirmation is the Sacrament in which you receive a deeper outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It completes what began in Baptism, strengthening the gifts needed to live out your whole life as a Catholic.
Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation is a two year process that typically begins in September of 9th Grade (1st year of preparation) and completes in May of 10th Grade (2nd year of preparation).
This is an exciting and important time in the process of growing in faith and the program features opportunities to experience all the aspects of parish life and ministry. We want young people to know what it is like to believe and belong to the parish community of Sacred Heart. Faith is put into action through liturgical, parish and community/mission service opportunities. There are workshops and speakers that help participants understand and experience prayer, Social Justice, Morality, central beliefs in our faith and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Also included is a Retreat in 10th Grade.
The program, in conjunction with the GIFT program, is designed to fit the busy lives of teens and families. Confirmation preparation is a commitment and our hope and expectation is that participants (and parents where needed ) attend and actively participate in all elements of the program. Trying on Jesus Christ deserves nothing less!
