RE Resources - Confirmation

Here you can find a series of worksheets for use in Confirmation programmes. Our aim is to try to provide worksheets and other materials for catechists and teachers as well as candidates following confirmation courses.

The programme is made up of twelve sessions. (Click here for topics and session titles). It is intended to cover all necessary aspects of preparation that should be included in a confirmation course. As in the case of all other worksheets on our website, these confirmation worksheets, session plans and prayer sheets can be downloaded using Adobe reader.

This programme has been designed with flexibility in mind. Though the progamme is designed for 12 sessions, the resources can be adapted for a longer or shorter course with fewer or more sessions as required by different parishes. Sessions 1 and 2 for example could be merged to form one session. One or two sessions can be done as part of a confirmation away day.

For those who would like to do the catechesis programme over more than 12 sessions, one could extend work on some of the topics such as:

  • Follow up to Unit 7: Extra session or two to discuss and work on moral issues and the Catholic point of view.
  • Follow up to Unit 10: Extra session to discuss and research about the life of the chosen saint.
  • Supplementary Unit S1: The Holy Bible: God’s Written Word.
  • Supplementary Unit S2: God’s Law: Understanding the Ten Commandments.

These last two sessions are included in the programme below.
