Confirmation Remote Learning
Hello everyone! I hope this message finds you well. This page is long, but please read the entire thing!
For everyone’s safety, we are not meeting as a group, however, we are still preparing for Confirmation! Please do items 1-5 for each session.
- 1. Participate in the Sunday or Monday Zoom Meeting for each session
We will be doing sessions 9: The Church, 10: Personal Safety, 11: Made for Mission, and 12: Holiness is Possible with a free video conferencing app called Zoom (more details and informational links below). Our Zoom meetings will start at our normal meeting times on Sunday afternoons or Monday evenings, and be between 20-40 minutes, depending on group size.
Zoom will allow us to check in, be in community, and have a conversation. If you have not used Zoom before, please familiarize yourself with it as soon as possible. It can be downloaded on a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or smartphone, so we should all be able to participate. Please make sure to download the app and sign in on your computer or device well before our first meeting so we can start on time and make the most of our time together.
Following the Zoom meeting, there will be a few requirements (the Zoom meeting is the only current requirement for session 10 as all other content for this session must be done in person, as per the Diocese).
- 2. Watch Decision Point videos
As parent and candidate, watch all six of the Decision Point videos for each week’s session. Complete the private reflections in your workbooks and discuss your responses.
- 3. Watch the Holy Apostles Video
Our Holy Apostles time is important, so I am preparing a video for each week’s session. Please watch, as parent and candidate, and discuss your thoughts on the video for that week’s session. Each video will end with a challenge for both parents and candidates to try out that week. Challenges will be things you can do even now, I promise!
- 4. Candidate’s Written Summary
Candidates, reflect on the activities for the week’s session—this includes the Zoom meeting, Decision Point Videos, parent and candidate discussion, and Holy Apostles video. Write a one paragraph summary to address the following questions: What stood out to you? What information was new to you? How does this topic or how might this insight impact your life?
- 5. Candidates, email your summary to me at email@example.com prior to the next session
- 6. Helpful Links
Below are the links to the page for each session. Each page includes links to Decision Point videos as well as the Holy Apostles video. Please note that each session has a different Zoom invite link that you will use for that session only.
