Senior High Confirmation

 

 

Confirmation (Youth)

Welcome to the Confirmation Program (2019 – 2020).  We are presently in a transition period.                The Archdiocese of Seattle has lowered the Confirmation grade to those in the 7th grade.  We have been given time to implement this new change to make sure no teen is missed.  The following model is the one we will be using at Sacred Heart Parish.

                                                       Academic Year                                 Grades

Year 1                                     2019-2020                                           10th-12th Grade

Year 2                                     2020-2021                                           8th-10th Grade

Year 3                                     2021-2022                                           7th-8th Grade

In 2022-2023 academic year Confirmation will be done in the 7th grade.
