About Chosen

Chosen is designed to offer teens a life-changing experience as they journey through their Catholic faith in all its richness and vitality. Initially conceived as a Confirmation program, it became evident during development that Chosen’s content goes beyond sacramental preparation.

In response to the very high level of interest from early reviewers, educators, and group leaders—and to the enthusiasm from various experts involved in the project—Chosen has been produced in two formats: a Confirmation edition and a general Faith Formation edition.

Praise for Chosen

“The examples that they use in the videos are really relatable and you can understand them, it’s not just people lecturing you.” Cassie T., age 13

“We can see already that the Chosen program is going to give them means to remain firmly rooted in Christ. Students said that it was very clear to them that the presenters were passionate about what they were talking about, and were seriously and lovingly interested in them.” Sr. Paschalina Marie, St. Peter’s Parish, Spokane, WA

Why Two Editions?

Chosen & Chosen Faith Formation Student Edition

Both Chosen formats offer the same dynamic and powerful twenty-four lessons, differing only in the emphasis that key sessions of the Confirmation edition place on sacramental preparation.

Together, both editions give parishes the flexibility to reach teens in virtually any situation, including Confirmation prep, youth groups, school and parish religious education, whole family catechesis, RCIA, home use, or any setting that calls for engaging and inspirational catechetical teaching.
