Suggestions for teachers unsure what to do with children opting out of sacramental preparation

  1. Have them listen to an entire Mumford & Sons album and ask them to re-assess their view on the possible existence of The Devil
  2. Original sins: Get them to think up and agree a new one, thereby developing their capacity for moral reasoning and consensus
  3. Role play: The Silent Majority. Get them to just sit still and say absolutely nothing (Confirmation class age only)
  4. Host a Q & A session with Jim Corr. Facilitate them to decide which one of them will be Jim Corr (Communion class age only)
  5. Play Spot the Difference:

  1. Haha! Enya will be delighted with that.
    I take it you were watching Claire Byrne last night? If not this was actually put forward as an argument by the catholic schools: if children were not partaking in the sacraments, what would the teacher do with them?! Made my blood boil. Had to turn over, couldn’t go to bed with that rage. And I don’t even have kids
