Countdown to Confirmation: A Resource Guide for Immediate Preparation
Author: John D Manno & Maureen Giocondo
Here Confirmation Candidates are taught about the sacrament even as they walk through its ritual aspects. The liturgical rite becomes the focal point for helping them understand what it means to be a confirmed member of the Catholic Church. These eight sessions therefore explore the phrases used in the dialogue between the bishop and the candidate so that the liturgy itself is at the heart of the lessons.
Topics include: The Role of the Bishop, The Request to be Confirmed, Making Decisions, The Anointing with Oil, The Holy Spirit, What We Believe, Pentecost, and Being Sent Forth.
