Confirmation seals our Baptism and confirms out commitment both to the Church and to the work of Christ in the world.

 

“For by the sacrament of Confirmation, the baptized are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit.” – Catechism of the Catholic Church 1285

Youth Confirmation

Confirmation for young people is traditionally celebrated in the Spring of the 8th grade year. A minimum of two years of formal education prior to celebration of the Sacrament is required.
Both candidates and parents participate in the preparation process.

Requirements for Youth Confirmation:

The sacrament of Confirmation requires two years of preparation in the Diocese of St. Petersburg. Students seeking Confirmation are required to attend Edge (if in middle school) or LifeTeen (if in high school) for one full year prior to the Confirmation year for preparation of the sacrament.  The year the student receives the sacrament of Confirmation, they must attend the Edge/LifeTeen program along with three Saturday morning preparation classes, a two day class, complete service hours, pick a confirmation sponsor and attend confirmation rehearsal.  All requirements are reviewed at a yearly parent meeting and will be provided in paper form to all registered familie
