Kenosis Confirmation and Renewal Curriculum

Does it seem like your teens are preparing for the Sacrament of Graduation, rather than the Sacrament of Confirmation?

Confirmation preparation is one of the most difficult challenges a youth minister faces. Tired parents, burned-out volunteers, complaining candidates, combined with the general confusion surround the Sacrament of Confirmation, and it’s no wonder why the majority of Confirmation coordinators don’t make it to their second year. Have no fear – help is on the way. YM Central is proud to offer you our Confirmation and Renewal Curriculum, version 2.0.

It’s completely web based: All you have to do is download it and copy it into your word processing program. Give yourself a planning break, and let YM Central do the work for you!
