called to mercy: confirming young people for a mission of witness

Imagine, a Confirmation preparation program . . . 

  • That meets young people where they are–anytime, anywhere
  • That effects a spiritual conversion in young people's lives so that they joyfully say yes to lives of mercy
  • That encourages young people to show mercy toward others–to be witnesses of mercy in their daily lives
  • In which young people come to recognize the encounter of mercy in their lives

Called to Mercy: Confirming Young People for a Mission of Witness is that program!

NEW! Sponsor Course

Call 800.533.8095 to order!

Sponsors immerse themselves in the same journey as their young people, and together they experience Christ’s call to live out mercy in their lives.

Questions, polls, and guide dialogue are addressed to the sponsors, as they reflect on answering the call to mercy in their own lives. All sponsors are put into one course so they can see one another’s responses.

Each module in the Confirmation Sponsor Experience ends with Conversation Starter Questions for the sponsor and young person to discuss. Sponsors then meet with their young people regularly during Confirmation preparation to strengthen their relationship, reflect on their experience, and discuss how to apply their learnings in daily life.
