Now in Spanish! When parents had their child baptized, they promised to raise him or her to learn and experience our Catholic Faith. The Sacrament of Reconciliation is one of those steps in fulfilling that promise. Reconciliation is a reminder to all of us that "God loves us no matter what." A child's first experience of the sacrament will set the stage for what should become a lifetime of experiencing God's unconditional love in this great tradition of our Faith. For this reason, it is important for parents to inform themselves concerning what the Church teaches about reconciliation and how best to communicate those teachings to our children.
Catholic Parent Know-How: First Reconciliation was written just for that purpose. In 8, easy-to-read pages, parents will come away confident about their understanding of the Sacrament as well as how best to communicate Church teachings on Reconciliation to their child.
