Year 1 Session – Holy Spirit – Lord and Giver of Life
The purpose of this lesson is to encourage students to understand who the Holy Spirit is and to cultivate a relationship with the 3rd Person of the Trinity. The “Age of the Spirit” began at Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit descended to lead them “to all truth” (John 16:13) as the apostles built up the Church. However, the Holy Spirit, has no beginning or end. He was present at Creation, has worked through salvation history, enters us at Baptism, and seals each person at Confirmation with an indelible mark, empowering us with through 7 gifts we receive in Confirmation.
