Chosen: A Confirmation Program Worth Checking Out


As a Confirmation catechist and program leader, I am ALWAYS looking for great resources. With our Confirmation Boot Camp program, we have never found anything that works completely and totally.

Advent Links (for the Ladies from St. Bartholomew in Cincinnati)

I used not one, but TWO Advent wreaths during my talk. What can I say? Flames are FUN! :)

I think I had the MOST FUN I have EVER had at a talk tonight. And I couldn’t find my camera before I left home and I have no audio to share and…well, you’ll just have to believe me. I did, however, tweet my set-up pic (from my non-smartphone): So, for those of you who […]

I’ve accepted it: Advent is coming. And soon. Maybe it’s been made easier by how busy I’ve been over the last six weeks. The busy of this coming season will be a calmer version (with food! and song! and family get-togethers!). I know I won’t succeed trying to use all of these resources, but I […]
