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 they are accompanied by adult leaders 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 journeys with our young people all the way to Confirmation (end of 8th grade), and sets them up to transition into Divine Mercy’s high school youth ministry. There they will continue to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ and their peers.
