Product Description

The Forgiveness of the Lord is designed to help parents prepare their young children for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The basic catechesis is done at home with the support of the parish community and a program director. The director's role is to prepare the parents and to involve the parish community in the sacramental preparation.

The Child's Book consists of three unit lessons on Welcoming, Confessing and Healing. Each unit revolves around a specific action, a scripture story illustrating that action, and the rites of the reconciliation celebration. The Child's Book also includes sections with prayers, ways to grow in love and certificates that truly invite parents and children to participate. Photos and four-color illustrations.
