A journey for the whole family
A First Reconciliation and First Communion preparation program meant to bring the whole family into the experience.
Dedicating 6 sessions for the child preparing for their Sacraments
and 6 sessions that are separate yet complementary for parents/caregivers. Parents we are hoping that you will watch the short video with your child and assist them in their activity.
We then have something special planned for you that includes reflections and personal testimonies from a range of amazing individuals.
Each session can be completed in 10 - 20 minutes.
Session 1 - "The Journey"
God's creation, our gifts, our journey.
Session 2 - "The Climb"
Our sin, His Grace, our Saviour.
Session 3 - "The Refresh"
Part 1: Reconciliation, forgiveness, mercy.
Part 2: Mock First Reconciliation
Part 3: Examination of Conscience
Session 4 - "The Campsite"
Our hunger, nourishment, refueling.
Session 5 - "The Trial"
The supper, the sacrifice, the rising.
Session 6 - "The Summit"
Part 1: The celebration, the Eucharist, the Joy!
Part 2: Mock First Communion
Part 3: Church Tour
