The content we will look at the quarter focuses on the preparation for Confirmation. We will look at a variety of topics covered in the Catholic Christian Doctorine through power point slides, assignments, and quizzes. We will also incorporate the program by Mathew Kelley Decision Point. We will engage in a lot of conversations about using their faith in their young lives and they will also reflect on a number of different questions from Mathew Kelley.
