What a fantastic start to our First Holy Communion Parents Sessions. We hope you are enjoying it.
If you missed the October sessions, we explored what it means to have a relationship with God. We watched video from the Alpha course to help our conversations. Please find it below.
Below are also some Youtube videos which we recommend watching: one is about the Prodigal Son and another is a great one about science and religion.
A video to watch with your children
The Mass is made up of two parts: the Liturgy of the Word (the opening up of scripture) and the Liturgy of the Eucharist (the taking, the blessing, the breaking and the giving of the bread).
Videos from the session
Watch this simple sketch video together about the steps of Reconciliation.
When discussing the importance of speaking our sins out loud, we watched this clip 'Why Do I Confess To A Priest?' by Bishop Robert Barron....See you what you think.
We are offering two extra opportunities to attend the Parents evenings, 'all about Jesus', if you have missed them. The morning session is at 10.30am (preschool children most welcome), and the evening session is at 7.30pm. Both will be held at St Joseph's Church hall.

Here is a summary of the talk, and the videos, from our third parents evening, on Jesus' Death and Resurrection.
