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want the necessary information on the Catholic faith in hand as they commit personally to the promises of faith originally made for them at baptism.
Provides several "how to use" tips for catechists and other adult leaders to share the monthly lessons in diverse groups and settings.
Send Out Your Spirit offers three flexible models for confirmation preparation:
• Ten 3-Hour Sessions
• Twenty 1-Hour Sessions
• Ten 90-Minute Sessions for Concentrated Small Group Preparation
