What’s Our Purpose?
Life Teen’s Purpose is a transformative plan for Confirmation preparation. Purpose is designed to help proclaim the Gospel message to young people while providing an atmosphere where adult leaders accompany them toward discipleship. There are three aspects to the Purpose plan: “Why believe in God?” “Why trust Jesus?” and “Why belong to the Church?” This curriculum is designed to be kerygmatic with an emphasis on walking a teenager from an unfounded belief (or disbelief) in God toward a commitment to Jesus lived out through the Catholic Church. Each session includes Scripture, Church teaching, and a short video that engages the heart, mind, and humor of teenagers. The program begins in 7th grade and our young people journey all the way to Confirmation (end of 8th grade) and sets them up to transition into Divine Mercy’s high school youth ministry. Where they will continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and their peers.
Alongside the Purpose program we will be walking through the Gospel of Luke (7th Grade) and the Acts of the Apostles (8th Grade). The students will learn how to read the Scriptures, pray with them, and apply the teaching to their lives.
The ultimate goal of Formation at Divine Mercy is to instruct the entire family in the faith, and walk alongside parents/guardians as they pass it on to the next generation.
