Confirmation is both a sacrament of initiation into the fullness of the Christian community and an opportunity for young people to deepen their commitment to the person of Jesus Christ through the gift of the Holy Spirit.
The minimum age for reception of the sacrament in the Diocese of San Diego is fifteen. Sacred Heart’s preparation for young people interested in receiving the sacrament of Confirmation begins earlier than fifteen and involves a two-year process of catechesis, service, retreat participation, and sacramental celebration. Candidates must have attended Confirmation classes and participated in sessions and activities outlined in the program. Young people of high school age are encouraged to inquire about the specific guidelines.

Adults receive Confirmation as part of the R.C.I.A. process.
