signs of grace

You are Sent

Signs of Grace: You Are Sent prepares children to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation by helping them discover more deeply the presence and power of the Holy Spirit that they will receive in order to be sent on mission to be witnesses of Jesus.  Parent sessions presented by world-acclaimed theologian and teacher Dr. Brant Pitre will help the entire family learn about the powerful and life-changing Sacrament of Confirmation.

Discover the Curriculum

This curriculum includes five sessions.  Beginning with the story of the sending of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, each session will use Sacred Scripture and the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to help children to discover how the Holy Spirit is powerfully present in the Church and how the Sacrament of Confirmation is their own personal Pentecost, filling them with the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirt and sending them on a crucial mission to witness Christ in the world.

Activities, Scripture, videos, and stories are provided to engage both the mind and the heart so that the child can come to fully understand the gift of grace and mercy offered through the Sacrament.

And while the curriculum is focused on the child, it also recognizes that it is in the Christian family that the Faith is first learned and is most effectively understood and lived out. A Family Take Home Page is provided with each session in English and Spanish to engage parents and the entire family in this journey of Faith.
