Confirmation

SHConfirmation2015-0353Sacred Heart offers preparation for the immediate reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation for our youth. Sessions are held throughout the year, from September through May, with the reception of the Sacrament celebrated during the spring.

 

 

Parent Information Session
We ask that parents attend the orientation session that explains the preparation process and serves as a great chance to meet other parents and ask questions.  The session will be held on Tuesday, October 10, 2017 beginning at 6:00 pm at the North Campus Auditorium (3515 N. Florida Ave). The session must be attended by at least one parent desiring to enroll their child(ren) for preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation during the 2017-2018 Catechetical Year.

Youth Confirmation Workshops
Your son or daughter is expected to attend various workshops throughout the year. Workshops are typically held on Wednesday evenings, from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Please see the “Key Dates” below. Parents participate in these workshops as well. Attendance of all workshops is expected – including the overnight retreat.

Please note: The Diocese of St. Petersburg requires at least two years of consecutive Faith Formation, whether in a Catholic parochial school or parish Faith Formation program, prior to the celebration of the Sacraments.
