 RE:

Topic 2: Called

Through Baptism and Confirmation people are given the gift of the Holy Spirit and are called to respond in their lives. During this topic we will think our responses to be chosen, confirmation; a call to witness and the responses of others to be chosen. 

Topic 3: Gift

God’s gift of Jesus is a gift of love to all people of all time. Jesus reveals God’s love for humanity and the possibility of friendship. This gift is celebrated each Christmas. During the season of Advent, we explore this gift of love and the promise of Jesus’ return at the end of time. During this topic we will think about the gift of love and friendship, as well as thinking about Advent and Christmas: The Church’s seasons of preparing to receive God’s gift of love and friendship in Jesus.
