This course is intended for those inquiring about the faith and who may desire to seek full communion with the Catholic Church.
This course is to serve as preparation of the Sacrament of Confirmation. First and foremost it is to deepen the student's relationship with Christ. It will give them the tools they need to engage the world and to be intentional disciples to share the Good news of Jesus Christ. This good news is that we are loved by God and are called to help others recognize this love by our love for them. We also will proved the students with a review of the basics of the faith, such as the 10 Commandments, the Beatitudes, the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit as to equip them to be witnesses to Christ and the Church He established.
This is the preparation for the second of thee Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist. The goal is to help the students recognize that Jesus is inviting them, as He did the Apostles to be sealed with the Holy Spirit and be ready to witness to the truth of the Gospel. There will certainly be an overview of the faith and the teaching of the Church Jesus established, such as the 10 commandments, the Precepts of the Church, the Spiritual and Corporate works of Mercy and looking that History of the Church and her saints. They will have the opportunity to study and understand the Scriptures and Apostolic Tradition. (see 2 Thes 2:15) Most importantly the hope is they will deepen their relationship with Jesus and more clearly understand the depth of God's love for us.
