First Communion Parents

Jul 31, 2011

Every Second Sunday evening over the past three months, I have been meeting with the parents of the children who are preparing for First Communion later in the year.

In these sessions it has been my aim to reawaken in all of us, a sense of the beauty and relevance of Catholic Faith for our lives in 21st century Christchurch.

Tonight was our last session until later in the year.  First Communion will be celebrated in the parish in November.

As a way of continuing to learn about the Catholic Faith I suggested getting a copy of the Catholic Catechism. The United States bishops have produced a very user-friendly edition. It even has pictures.

Tap on the image to find the Catechism on the Amazon site.

Thomas was not doubting as much as seeking; he was expressing the desire of one who truly yearns for adult faith.
