To help parishes during this time of isolation, the Diocese is providing the following resource of four sessions to help families preparing for First Communion of a child. You will find a Parent Guide as well as a Child’s Journal.
The sessions are:
- The Mass
- The Real Presence
- The Community (Communion of Saints)
- The Source and Summit of our faith
Each session is outlined with a video for you to watch before working with your child to set the stage for what you will be working on; a prayer; a video to watch with your child; an activity to do with your child; a time to reflect on the lesson in the journal.
The Child’s Journal is designed to help children learn and process the four teachings above. Your parish may wish to see a completed journal when you are finished. Check with your parish to see what they require
