Catechism Lesson #1: The Purpose of Man’s Existence

On most of the Wednesdays during school year, I am teaching both the Confirmation & 1st Communion PREP (CCD) classes. I am spending about 15 minutes at each class, and teach them the basic Catechism.

The first lesson was given last Wednesday, and the topic is: The Purpose of Man’s Existence. The recording is from the Confirmation class.


  • God made us to show forth His goodness and to share with us His everlasting happiness in heaven.
  • To gain the happiness of heaven we must know, love, and serve God in this world.
  • We learn to know, love, and serve God from Jesus Christ.
  • Jesus teaches us through the Catholic Church.
  • We find the chief truths taught by Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church in the Apostles’ Creed.
