Preparing for Confirmation Using Faith First Junior High Liturgy and Morality,
Faith First Legacy Church & Sacraments, & Church History

The preparation for Confirmation is a grace-filled time. Preparing for Confirmation will assist you in using Faith First Junior High Liturgy and Morality to prepare students for celebrating the sacrament of Confirmation.

These chapters present concepts that are an essential part of a sound catechesis for sacrament preparation for Confirmation. It is suggested to use Chapters 3, 5, and 7 as part of the preparation for the celebration of Confirmation. Chapter 11 can be used as part of this preparation, or it may be presented after the celebration of Confirmation to help the students discover the life-long decision that each of us makes to live out our baptismal promises. Chapter 5 has been divided into two lessons. Thus there are a total of five lessons that can be used for Confirmation preparation. A prayer ritual, an activity page, and a family page are included for each of lesson. A Confirmation retreat program is also included.

Preparing for Confirmation is simple, clear, and easy to use. The booklet consists of five pages for presenting each of the lessons. On the first page for each lesson, you will find a brief background essay that places the chapter in the context of preparation for Confirmation. This page also contains the objectives for the lesson and a list of helpful resources that can be used to enrich the teaching of the lesson.

The activities help the students apply and integrate the faith themes of the lesson into their daily living.
