For this evening’s Confirmation Intensive, we are doing the same session we did last year but with a new twist. The session focuses on SEVEN: 7 Deadly Sins, 7 Virtues, and 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit. The kick to the whole evening is that we explore all of these topics through popular music!
We had a lot of fun doing this last year and we’re keeping the same songs at least for this year (perhaps next year I’ll revisit it and incorporate some new songs). The new twist is that, after we do an introductory half-hour in our homerooms, we’re going to gather together in one room for the remainder of the session, listening to excerpts from the songs and talking about the deadly sins, the virtues, and the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. Each of the 5 catechists will handle a certain segment of the presentation…it’s always great to work together in a group like this.
P.S. I received an e-mail from Lidia in CA suggesting another song for ENVY: “We Hate it When Our Friends Become Successful” by Morrissey…great suggestion, great song!
