Developed in a parish setting over three years, Transformed in Christ is a 22-session programme to prepare 12-16-year-olds to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
Each session includes a ‘time of prayer’ resource for introducing candidates to authentic Catholic prayer; the overarching theme of the programme is a constant invitation to candidates to deepen their relationship with Christ
It covers the full content of the Faith, providing an ideal complement to YouCat (the Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church) and respecting the systematic and organic nature of doctrine. It integrates the four dimensions of the Christian life (teaching, liturgy, life in Christ, prayer). Acknowledging the reality of teenagers’ methods of learning, the flow of each lesson is fast-paced, each activity never extending beyond 10 or 15 minutes
It uses a variety of different teaching strategies (short talks, video clips, quizzes, games, small group discussion) taking into account different learning processes.
