The Diocese of Manchester in partnership with the National Initiative on Adolescent Catechesis and Dr. Michael Carotta is offering parishes an opportunity to enhance their current efforts with Confirmation preparation. Instead of developing a brand new program, pastors and parish staff are asked to make enhancements to the existing confirmation preparation process.
Confirmation teams will gather for a diocesan planning day, March 31, 2014, to reflect on their current program. Teams learn about and choose two to three enhancements to augment their confirmation prep program in the next year. Midway through their enhanced program, November 3, 2014, teams will all gather again in the diocese for an evaluate-and-adjust meeting. Bookending the process is an evaluation survey by past and present confirmation candidates so that impact of the enhancements can be assessed.
