CCD hs: Catholic pop quiz + Saints assignments (day 2)

In our high school Confirmation class (at St Mark’s), Jose & I gave a POP Quiz with 23 questions to see what our kids know to better gauge how much to review.  I didn’t expect much, and wasn’t disappointed.  After introductions and time to fill it out, we went over the first 10 questions in large group discussion.  Here are some of the questions:

  1. How many Catholic friends do you have?  (ranged from none to 12 to 1,000 to many)
  2. What Catholic tradition do you like?  (sign of the cross, Eucharist, Holy Week, Lent, Christmas, Christmas Novena readings, )
  3. What Catholic tradition do you not understand?  (Ash Wed, Halloween)
  4. What is the name of the Pastor here?  (only 4 of 24 got it right … not good)
  5. Name 3 ministries in this parish.
  6. What prayers do we pray in the Rosary?
  7. What is the name of the current Pope?  (who’s George III?)
  8. What is the Eucharist?
  9. Why do we have confession?
  10. What do we celebrate on Good Friday?

After some discussion about the questions, we paired up kids and assigned a Saint to present, one per day, with a schedule of presentation.  Great class, quiet but very insightful discussions.  Definitely a great year of catechesis ahead!  Praise God!
