HAVE YOU MISSED THE FIRST RECONCILIATION AND FIRST COMMUNION PARENT MEETINGS?
If you missed the meetings we have already had for First Reconciliation and First Communion, please call our parish office to get further information about registering you child for these sacraments.
FIRST RECONCILIATION AND FIRST COMMUNION AT HOME PREPARATION: BLESSED!
We are happy to have partnered with dynamiccatholic.com and their new program for First Reconciliation and First Communion home preparation. This program is meant to be used at home and is a supplement to the catechetical material that is presented in the Catholic school system. It is not meant to replace the essential catechesis presented in the Catholic school system. This program is designed to draw parents and families into the preparation process. As first educators of children in the faith, parents have a vital role in helping their children prepare for a meaningful celebration of these sacraments.
First Reconciliation preparation is available online now. First Communion preparation videos are also now available online. Videos can be viewed on any platform that has access to the internet.
First Reconciliation preparation involves six sessions each containing 5-6 videos. Parents can download the workbook and leader’s guide and view it online. We also hope to have the workbooks available in hard copy in the near future. Parents can review the videos and have a discussion with their child about the content. This will help children and parents come to an renewed appreciation of this sacrament of mercy
RECEIVE THE SESSIONS BY EMAIL
We recommend that parents subscribe to the email component for the delivery of the program. Each Monday over a six week period one of the six sessions will be mailed to the email address you provide when signing up. This serves as a reminder to review the material with your child. Sign up is available through the “For Parents” tab on the website. There is no need to order materials and you will not be pestered with email from third parties. The parish is able to order materials in bulk and have made a donation to Dynamic Catholic for the use of the material.
Here is a link to the material. It is important to look over the site carefully to get to know how to fully use the material available to you. Enjoy! First Reconciliation & First Communion at Home Preparation Blessed!
