The Subcommittee on the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has found the Candidate Handbook and Catechist Guide to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Candidate Handbook has an engaging approach that leads to thorough preparation for receiving and living a life anointed in the Spirit.
The chapters of this book introduce the candidates to central aspects of the Confirmation liturgy and help them to explore the meaning of the Sacrament. The material will help them to deepen their understanding of God's call to them to live a life of faith and to explore the significance of being confirmed Catholic.
The Candidate Handbook also includes Catholic prayers and lists of Catholic beliefs and practices, as well as a list of saints.
