From the Saint Mary's Press Website:
a senior high confirmation program, third edition
This traditional Confirmation program includes 23 90-minute sessions.
The third edition of Confirmed in a Faithful Community includes major revisions and updates, and it carries with it the firm conviction that Confirmation preparation for adolescents can be theologically sound, developmentally appropriate, and pedagogically exciting.
As a senior high Confirmation process grounded in the vision of initiation established by the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the goals of this program are to guide the parish toward an effective celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation and to help Confirmation candidates do the following:
- embrace their baptismal call and experience a deeper initiation into a welcoming Church community.
- grow in knowledge of the person, mission, and message of Jesus.
- understand the nature of the Church and appreciate the role of the Sacraments in the Church's life and their own lives.
- recognize the activity of the Holy Spirit in their lives and in the life of the Church.
- understand the rite of Confirmation and prepare to celebrate it in a meaningful way
