This year we have a new curriculum for Confirmation 10th grade. It just came out this last spring and we were lucky to be one of their test sites when they were writing it. This program prepared students intellectually and spiritually to receive the sacrament of Confirmation. The program both catechizes and challenges teens to fully embrace a life in Christ. Chosen is a comprehensive learning experience centered around video and workbook lessons, with guides for leaders, parents and sponsors.
