Effectively Confirming. What the bishop gives sacramentally is always efficacious. What parishes give catechetically isn’t always so reliably effective. How do we support our confirmands and their families in this deeply challenging modern culture? How do we move from a program to a conversion process, from required hoops to revelatory hope? Find out some practical strategies that apply to this and other parish ministries. This workshop will include insights from Sacred Scripture and the Magisterium, as well as examine current trends relating to the age of Confirmation and the ordering of the Sacraments of Initiation.
