"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
Sacred Heart Catholic Church takes on Confirmation candidates in the 10th grade of High School (or older). Our Confirmation program runs approximately from October to May, at various intervals throughout the year.
Confirmation candidates must have completed two years of High School Religious Education, be concurrently enrolled in their second year, or be enrolled in a Catholic Parochial School. Students enrolled in private schools affiliated with other Christian Denominations, but that are not Catholic (Lutheran, Anglican, etc.), will need to be enrolled in Sacred Heart's High School Religious Education program.
The fee for the 2016-2017 year is $165.00. This covers textbooks, classroom supplies, food and drink, retreat expenses, and much more throughout the school year. It also covers the monies owed to the Archdiocese of Baltimore, as well as 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.
