This program is designed to not only prepare young Catholics for the Sacrament of Confirmation in a dynamic way, but also to teach and inspire them to respond and cooperate with God’s grace in all the circumstances of their daily lives, long after their Confirmation has passed.
A large part of this preparation program will be using the free online DECISION POINT Confirmation preparation program. The prepared lessons will include only some of the videos, however, families are encouraged to watch the remaining videos to get an even fuller preparation experience.
