RECONCILIATION FESTIVAL - 4TH-6TH JUNE
HOW TO PREPARE FOR RECONCILIATION
Complete the family handout together or use it to frame your conversation. We structure the handout around the experience of the lost son in Jesus' beautiful Parable of Prodigal Son. In particular, we focus on three things:
1) he came to his senses
2) he rehearsed his sorry
3) he set off to the father
HOW DO I GO TO CONFESSION
Please watch the video below with your child. You can follow along with pages 7 & 8 in the Family Handout. You will receive a step-by-step guide on the day so don't worry about learning the order of things off by heart.
The sacraments use things from God the Father’s created world; it is Christ who works in them; the Holy Spirit pours into our lives through them.
The sacraments are 7 meeting points with God.
The sacraments are meant to change us. But they only bear fruit if they are received with an open disposition.
Watch this useful video about Sacraments from Bishop Barron.
