Confirmation




Three of our sons will be confirmed this week - and each has an older brother as a sponsor.

We finished our confirmation lapbooks back in February and they have been read and re-read numerous times this week.

What did we include in our lapbooks?

* A small book with a biography of their Saint names.
*A flip chart on the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
* A poster on the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
* Diagrams and pics illustrating the theological and cardinal virtues.
* Reproductions of appropriate artwork - each chosen by the individual son.

St Athanasius, St George and St Andrew pray for these three confirmation candidates.

We are starting our preparatioon for the three eldest who will be confirmed in September at Homeschooling camp.
I like your idea of a lap book. I think I'll get the children to create their own - with our assistance of course.

Congratulations to the boys! Those lap books will probably be the source of many wonderful memories for everyone.
