Tonight is our first Confirmation intensive for our 8th graders and everything is shaping up nicely (except for the weather…frigid temps and blustery winds!).
My prayer is that our young people will recognize how significant this preparation for their Confirmation is and will see it as a time of a deepening encounter with the Lord.
One of the fun parts of this evening is the fact that the kids will be rotating between 5 catechists. So, not only do they get to encounter 5 different adult role models, but I (we) get to meet the entire RE Confirmation class in one night.
I’ll have a full report tomorrow! Till then, “Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love!”
Your ideas on teaching the Holy Spirit are really helpful.
Thanks, Kathy…I hope they are of use to you in your classes!
