I’d love to. Sadly there isn’t a single confirmation candidate in my (small) parish and hasn’t been for a couple of years.
The concept of instilling a good and vibrant faith into our youngsters is one of the big things in my thinking. I think we fail our youth dramatically by frequently ceasing all church teaching contact with them after First Holy Communion and as a result they get disillusioned and bored long before reaching the normal age for Confirmation, which is why so few adolescents make it through to this stage.
We desperately need a program of continuing catechesis, in particular when kids aren’t exposed to Catholic schooling or particularly effective catechesis at home. We need to devise appropriate age related curriculums devoted to deepening faith, teaching prayer, introducing the other forms of liturgy beyond just the Mass, etc.
Maybe then we’d keep our youth. Maybe then we’d even find a few more vocations to the priesthood.
