Confirmation at
Sacred Heart

Confirmation for the Diocese of Des Moines will now be held in high school. Children's Faith Formation, in coordination with Sacred Heart School, is in the process of putting together a program that will guide our young members into a stronger faith, and an understanding of the teaching of the Catholic Church.

Students who attend Children's Faith Formation will attend 8th grade on Wednesday evening. SHS students will attend 8th grade at SHS. All students who are members of Sacred Heart Church should register for Confirmation Preparation to begin preparation in the fall of the 9th grade year. You will be Confirmed in the fall of 10th grade.

Please check the CFF page for details regarding all of our programs, and feel free to call us if you have questions.
