+  Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation

  • Description: "More than half a million Catholics receive the sacrament of Confirmation each year, but some studies show that nearly half leave the faith within five years. Stefanick worked with coauthor Ron Bolster, the director of catechesis at Franciscan University of Stuebenville, and a team of youth experts in developing a comprehensive curriculum that serves as a thorough introduction to the Catholic Faith. The end result, Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation, was released in the spring of 2014. The program includes a video series, a student workbook, and guides for leaders, parents, and sponsors, along with extensive online resources. In less than a year, Chosen has been adopted by thousands of parishes across the country and has received positive reviews from clergy, catechists, and most importantly, from teens."
