“This is an ideal Confirmation programme for a parish that wants something fresh and easily decipherable. It is theologically sound and fits in with the YouCat and the YouCat Prayer Book’s slick, colourful and vibrant look that young people so enjoy. It’s highly adaptable as well, with plenty of background ideas and ways of putting your own spin on things. An excellent resource, I highly recommend it.” (John Quinn, Youth Minister)
