Overview

Send Out Your Spirit leads teens through the major tenets of their faith-the Trinity, Jesus, scripture, Church, sacraments, morality, and more-specifically structured for the context of preparing for confirmation. This program is rooted in the idea that high school-aged candidates want the necessary information on the Catholic faith in hand as they commit personally to the promises of faith originally made for them at baptism.

The Candidate's Handbook was found in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Each chapter of the candidate's handbook includes a relevant story or short lesson, journal or discussion questions, and concludes with:

• Catholic Apologetics: A series of questions and answers on the faith.
• For You: An enrichment assignment that allows the candidates to apply the material in the chapter.
• Prayers and Reflections: Quotations, meditations, scripture passages, and traditional prayers. Glossary definitions of key words are also included with each chapter.
