Note: for those who are confirmed at the Easter Vigil – the Pastor is the ordinary of the sacrament.
Baptized Catholics are confirmed by the Bishop.
1 everyone renewing their baptismal promises
2 form line and have students come up for the anointing
( they need to know their responses: Amen, and with your spirit)
They need to be audible and clear. They should speak and respond like they really want to be confirmed LOL
If there is extra time you may share who you chose as your confirmation saint and why and call on some students to share who they chose and why.
Slowly and prayerfully go through the slides.
Explain that this is how you prepare for confession at home.
Spend time in prayer and silence using handouts from past classes or your books.
(additional handouts available for kids, teens and adults. Please give them out)
After the examination of conscience, walk through the “dialogue” of the sacrament.

Let the students know that we will be going through a website catalog of Eucharistic Miracles from all over the world put together by Carlo Acutis. Carlo was an English born Italian Catholic and amateur computer programmer. He died at the age of 15 in 2006 from leukemia.
He is a venerable and patron of the internet!
Begin in Poland, Sokółka 2008. Pass around photo taken by my Godmother so they can see a photo of the Eucharistic miracle up close.
Then go to Mexico, Tixtla. (Many of our students are of Mexican heritage)
Then allow the students to choose a country and city of choice.
