Junior High Catholic Confirmation Program

A six-part Catholic Confirmation program for junior high teens (7th and 8th graders) that provides immediate preparation for receiving the sacrament of confirmation.


Giver of Life Catholic Confirmation program has six four-page session handouts for candidates on the faith topics:

The six handouts provide stories, dilemmas, and activities for small-group interaction as well as readable, reflective input around which leaders can tailor presentations. Each handout both presents doctrinal concepts and draws young people into reflection on their own life experience in small-groups with other teens and adult group leaders.
$5.00 for all six sessions



Giver of Life Leader Manual provides lesson plans for six candidate sessions. The leader manual describes a planning process for Catholic confirmation directors and coordinators to use in building their parish religious education programs around the Giver of Life candidate sessions.

$10.95 each

Giver of Life Sponsor/Mentor Handbook summarizes the Giver of Life Catholic confirmation program, explains the role of sponsors and mentors, describes how to listen and talk with teens, and provides prayer and journaling opportunities for the adults who are walking with teens during the process of preparing for confirmation and becoming full, active members of the Christian community.

$3.00 per student


Giver of Life Confirmation Journal provides teens with key questions for reflection and prayer as they make their individual faith journeys through the six-session process. The journal also suggests questions for teens to use in six faith-sharing conversations with their mentors or their sponsors.
