5.2.3 Materials for Confirmation Preparation

1. The primary text for any parish confirmation program is to be chosen from among those sacramental preparation materials found to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. [1]

2. The permission of the diocesan bishop or of the diocesan director of catechesis is required for the use of any other materials as the primary text.



[1] See Bishop Earl Boyea, letter to religion teachers, August 2009, in Diocese of Lansing, Secondary Religion Curriculum: Core Courses and Electives (2009); available at diocesan website: “I would also remind you that no textbooks are to be used unless they are on the approved list of the USCCB Committee on Conformity to the Catechism.”
