Evaluation of the Confirmation Programme
The team has done its task very well. Now they have produced a remarkable evaluation of the entire programme. In three documents they have drawn up a comprehensive summary of the feelings and reactions: first of the candidates, then of their parents, and finally of their sponsors. The result is a mine of information for us to explore, sift, and bring into all our planning for the whole parish. Many say they want “to do something” for youth. This is sincere, often expressed with exasperation because it is felt to be so important. “What do our young people want?” is a frequent cry. Now we have something to get our teeth into. This process of evaluation of what we do and have done should be copied by all our activities.
