Where Prayerful Hands Serve With Love

Confirmation

Students customarily receive the sacrament of Confirmation during their eighth grade year in the Diocese of Arlington, upon the completion of a special two-year program of study and service.  Confirmation of students in our parish is normally celebrated in the spring at Sacred Heart Church by the Bishop of Arlington, or by another bishop designated by the diocese.

Adults who are in need of the sacrament of Confirmation should contact the Director of Faith Formation, or one of our priests or decons, for more information on preparing to receive this sacrament.

Registration Information

Students enrolled in Faith Formation classes at Sacred Heart will automatically be registered for Confirmation.

All Catholic school and homeschool students preparing to receive the sacrament must register for Confirmation in the Fall of their seventh grade year.  Please register your child(ren) online here.
