Life-Changing Faith Formation for Teens
Chosen: This Is Your Catholic Faith takes young people on a journey through the entire Catholic faith in all its richness and vitality. Teens will be captivated by the story, from Creation all the way through salvation history, and they will come to see how the sacraments, prayer, and discipleship are the keys to a happy life. The goal of this 24-lesson program is nothing short of winning over the hearts of teens and making them lifelong disciples of Christ.
Chosen’s carefully designed methodology features highly effective and engaging material conveyed through videos, student workbooks, and classroom experience. Featuring twelve of the top youth experts in the Church today and filmed in more than 50 locations, Chosen is unlike any program available in the Church today.
Chosen has been produced in two formats, this Teen Faith Formation edition (Chosen: This Is Your Catholic Faith) and a Confirmation edition (Chosen: Your Journey Toward Confirmation). Both use the same twenty four lessons and only differ in how Confirmation preparation is emphasized and highlighted in the Confirmation edition.
The 8-DVD Set provides twenty-four lessons (approximately 15-20 minutes each) with some of the most powerful and compelling speakers in the Church.
Filmed on locations all around the U.S. and internationally,Chosen keeps teens’ interest with the right balance of faith, fun, and powerful vignettes that challenge their existing perspectives on the meaning of their lives and their ultimate call to holiness.
Whilst I am reasonably happy with the DVD set, I am disappointed that the publicity material that I viewed before making my purchase did not say quite clearly that it would not be really useful without the leader's guide. Even if purchased by a parish, the DVDs are expensive. With the added cost of postage they are even more so. Later, when I sought to purchase the leader's guide, I found that postage virtually doubles its cost and I cannot proceed. I realize that I was mistaken in purchasing the DVDs only, and in making the initial purchase as an individual. In writing this review I hope to make others aware of the need to think it through very carefully.
