As more than one of you commented, "I send my kids to Catholic Schools (or religious education classes) not to hear what the teachers 'feel' or think, but what the Church teaches." --Archbishop Dolan

Send Out Your Spirit: A Confirmation Candidate's Handbook for Faith
by Michael Amodei; 2003 Ave Maria Press

The Catholic Youth Bible (you can also use the on-line Bible linked in the right column)

General instructions:

Only classes with classroom instruction are listed below. Your complete schedule includes additional mandatory classes on other dates for other purposes, and the times and places of those other classes will vary. It also lists service opportunities.

The assignments listed for a class are what you need to read and prepare in advance of that class. This text might require much more reading than others, so plan your time accordingly.

I will let you know in advance of upcoming classes if there is assigned written assignments or assigned discussion topics or questions.

If you need to be excused from a class for an important reason, have one of your parents contact me before class and send your homework to me right away.
