Best Confirmation Lesson EVER
“I used this as part of a confirmation retreat and the kids really connected to the lesson and gave positive feedback about it.“
– Patricia Brackett
In this incredibly fun and memorable object lesson, students will go through the process of making a big glass of chocolate milk and walk away knowing how awesome the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation are and how important it is for us to “activate” (use) the grace God gives us in these sacraments to be the saints we are called to be.
Teach the Sacrament of Confirmation with a video and some crazy ninja lingo (“WUCKPuFF!”). This is a full lesson that covers the origins of Confirmation and what the sacrament looks like today, as well as a silly way to help students memorize the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Catholic youth are giving up the faith at an alarming rate today. Leading researcher Christian Smith discovered one of the best ways to help Catholic teens keep their faith: “having parents who talked about religion and spirituality at home.” With these findings in mind, I have tried to create extra opportunities for my students and their parents (and strong Catholic adults in general) to have meaningful conversations of faith. This assignment is designed to do precisely that, working especially well alongside the Sacrament of Confirmation.
