Why Gifted with the Spirit?
Helping adolescents prepare for Confirmation is an important task. That’s why it’s a good thing the task is shared. Parents, sponsors, catechists, Confirmation directors, pastors, parish members, and bishops all contribute to preparing young people for active participation in the life of the Church.
The eight lessons of each Candidate Edition provide the information and inspiration that young people need as they move toward making and living out personal faith commitments.
Three-Step Lesson Process
Each Gifted with the Spirit lesson is presented as a three-step process:
- The Way begins with the opening prayer and an activity that invites the young people to reflect on their own life experience that relates to the lesson topic.
- The Truth presents the core message and doctrine of the lesson.
- The Life invites the young people to consider how to respond to the message or doctrine with their lives. It ends with a closing prayer.
