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 families.
