About The Mark

HopeStone, a Catholic lay organization wanted to give parishes, schools and families an opportunity to journey through Confirmation Preparation in an interesting, easy to understand and family friendly experience. 

There are 6 sessions within this program.

Each session will begin with a prayer, followed by a talk regarding an aspect of Confirmation and then finished with a personal testimony.

Each session will have 3 questions that are meant for submitting, which your parish leaders will receive. 

Session should take approximately 20-30minutes

Below is a short summary about the program:

Session 1 - "The One"

  - Who is God, where did He come from and was He created? 

Session 2 - "The Holy"

  - Who is Jesus, where and why did He come? Why did He have to die?

Session 3 - "The Catholic"

  - The Holy Spirit and how the church was established.

Session 4 - "The Apostolic"

  - Who are the Apostles were and why they were important?

  - Along with information about Pentecost. 

Session 5 - "The Church"

  - What is the church? What does it mean to be a part of the church?

Session 6 - "The Mark"

  - What does Confirmation mean for your soul?
