                    We will break them into small groups by grade, and do a short Holy Spirit                             transition check-in activity. Ask for names, school, and what image of the Holy                             Spirit they most identify with,

Hand out the Baptismal Promises sheet and give kids time to review it. Ask them to mark down anything that sticks out to them, or anything they have Questions about. Give 5 minutes for this… Then discuss:

  • Why is it important to renew our baptismal promises before being Confirmed? (Parents/God Parents amswered for you at baptism, now you get to answer for yourself)
  • Which of the promises are easiest to profess (say and believe)? Why?
  • Which of the promises are hardest to profess (say and believe)? Why?
  • Are there any aspects of the baptismal promises that you still do not understand (make a note of these on your own sheet and we can discuss)
