First Penance and First Eucharist Preparation
Called to Him. Kept in Him. Made new in Him. God’s generosity and His fatherly love for His young daughters and sons are strikingly evident in the gift of these two sacraments to those newly arrived at the age of reason. This workshop unfolds the Church’s guidance for parents and parishes in preparing souls for Confession and Communion. By considering the role of both the home and the parochial settings, a balanced and effective formation can be achieved. This pragmatic workshop also addresses common struggles and cultural issues that Catholic communities face in developing responsible and robust approaches to helping young souls be open to grace. This workshop's creation was made possible through a generous grant by William H. Sadlier, Inc.
