It has reached the stage of First Confession. Over the weekend and next week you parents are coming to receive help from our specialist leaders. For it is now your task in the next month to use the excellent workbook with your child to prepare them for their First Confession in December. Last year we found a better way of conducting these confessions and we will again follow the same pattern. First all the family members who have joined in the homework will come and sit with a priest. Together we will look at the work done. Which was the favourite story? etc Has the child grasped that confession is a meeting with Jesus who is bursting with love and eagerness to help? Only when a comfortable atmosphere has thus grown will the family retire, and leave the newly prepared for a simple chat with the priest alone. Everything positive – to grasp the love that is there and the good that can grow.
