Item description for Countdown to Confirmation: A Resource Guide for Immediate Preparation by John D. Manno & Maureen Giocondo...

This unique and creative program can be adapted for any age group and can certainly be used with RCIA candidates and catechumens. Here's a confirmation preparation program that goes right to the source. It teaches about the Rite itself because the authors believe that the liturgy is the primary source of catechesis. "The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all the Church's power flows" (Constitution of the Sacred Liturgy, 10). Candidates are taught ABOUT the sacrament even as they walk through its ritual aspects. The liturgical rite becomes the focal point for helping them understand what it means to be a confirmed member of the Catholic Church. These eight sessions therefore explore the phrases used in the dialogue between the bishop and the candidate so that the liturgy itself is at the heart of the lessons. Topics include: The Role of the Bishop, The Request to be Confirmed, Making Decisions, The Anointing with Oil, The Holy Spirit, What We Believe, Pentecost, and Being Sent Forth. Each session includes a section called "Understanding This Session," which offers creative ways for candidates to respond to what they have learned.

Publishers Description
This program uses liturgy as the primary source for catechesis, emphasizing the place of confirmation with the process of initiation. Can be used with other confirmation curricula.
