Confirmation Session Recaps

October


OCTOBER SESSION:

BUILDING A COMMUNITY

Main Idea:

We are a community that will learn, grow, and celebrate together as we prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation.

Topics Covered:

What is Confirmation

As we begin our journey towards receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, let us explore what Confirmation is all about.

To begin, check out this video that is an overview of Confirmation.

Read through the following handout and reflect on how being confirmed can change your life.

Also, like all the other Sacraments, Confirmation is rooted in scripture. Read through the Biblical references to Confirmation.

There are also some requirements that go along with preparing for Confirmation. Take a look at this checklist. If you can, print off this checklist to express your feelings about each statement by using the code found below. Then as an symbol of your commitment to preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation, sign in the signature box. Then place the checklist in your red folder. You can download the Candidate’s Checklist here.

Codes for expressing your feelings:

C = This will be challenging for me
E = This will be easy for me
F = I am looking forward to this
H = I will need help with this
I = I will need more information

Design a Disciple 

Confirmation is saying yes to discipleship…a disciple is a follower, one who accepts and assists in spreading the teachings of another. A Christian disciple is a person who accepts and assists in spreading the good news of Jesus Christ.

Think about what the traits of a follower of Christ are. What is a disciple? 

On paper, draw a person; add all the traits that are the traits of a disciple.


Everyday Christian 

We can deepen our relationship with God by practicing our faith in everyday life. It is our actions, not just our words that make us Christians.

Check out the infographic below. These are just a few ideas that can help you live a Christian life. What is an 11th goal that you feel would be important to add?
