The Starter Pack contains everything a leader needs to begin the Altaration study:
The 3-DVD Set (five sessions, approximately 20 min. each†) features some of the top Catholic youth presenters in the church today, including Mark Hart, Jackie Francois Angel, Fr. Mike Schmitz, Chris Stefanick and Fr. Josh Johnson. The program also features music from acclaimed Catholic musicians Ike Ndolo and Emily Wilson.
† With the exception of Lesson 5, which is a dynamic, 60-minute specially formatted walk through the Mass.
The Student Workbook is a key element of the Altarationprogram and serves to both expand on and reinforce the powerful video presentations. It includes starter stories, group questions, prayers, weekly challenges, vocabulary words, a rich appendix, cycle of readings, and more. Each teen should have a Student Workbook.
The Leader’s Guide provides the framework and content a catechist needs to guide teens through the Altarationlearning experience. It includes the entire content of the student workbook, plus a program overview, planning and scheduling resources, leader’s notes, session overviews and objectives, and much more.
As a more mature viewer of this product I still found it very informative., especially with regards to the role of the Priest during Mass and how the Mass came to be as it is today. For young people seeing how the priests came to their decision to be priests, i think, would be eye opening. This is a timely introduction for young people who may be at an age where they are questioning the importance of God and the Mass in their lives.
