Called to Mercy
Called to Mercy combines the best of all learning experiences, tapping the strength and appeal of online learning with the power of interspersed, gathered, face-to-face sessions. Ten online learning modules and five gathered community-building sessions offer engaging, relevant, and deeply reflective opportunities for a true spiritual conversion to lives that give witness to Jesus’ call and the Church’s mission of mercy.
Called to Mercy is a responsive eLearning website that allows young people to easily access the online learning modules anytime, from anywhere, on any device that connects to the internet! Now young people don’t have to choose between school activities or work and Confirmation prep. They can do both, completing the online learning modules at their own pace and on their schedule.
Meet Our Guides
We are the guides who will accompany and lead your young people through the 10 online learning modules. They will encounter us throughout the program in short videos as well as through written dialogue that looks like text messages. We are real people in real life—we actually exist—but we don’t interact with the young people in your program in a live way; rather, we guide them virtually, through pre-recorded videos and scripts. Our job is to help them navigate through each learning module. We set the tone and direction for each module, and we share our thoughts and insights and invite the young people to do the same. We have had a blast preparing all of our interactions for this program, and we hope Called to Mercy is an amazing journey for you and your young people.
When we worked with teens to design Called to Mercy, one of the things we heard repeatedly was that the application must have music as part of the experience. We knew we could find existing music to use, but we decided to do something even more meaningful. We put out a call to songwriters across the country and asked them to submit original songs that directly relate to the primary themes in each of the learning modules for Called to Mercy. The result is seven original songs written, recorded, and produced exclusively for the young people enrolled in Called to Mercy.
We would love to set you up with access and guide you through a full review of Called to Mercy. See just how perfectly it will fit into your parish! Fill out the information below. We will get you set up. Then, together we can start a revolution—a revolution of mercy!
1. Do I need to know how many young people are in my class in order to register?
No! We can add in the quantity of young people later on. We know classes flex size and have done our best to create an experience that will allow you to easily change the number in your class.
2. Do I need to have everyone’s email address before I get started?
Nope! When you register, you’ll get a Starter Kit. In the Kit is the web address to share with your students, who will self-register once they have the course code. Easy!
