First Holy Communion Preparation Resources
The Catechetics Council of the Irish Bishops Conference have produced a series of resources which would be very useful in the preparation of children for their First Holy Communion. They consist of three movie episodes (30mins each). In this three part series, Eleanor and Johanna along with Fr Chris help children prepare to celebrate Reconciliation and Holy Communion for the first time.
Lesson 1: The sacrament of Reconciliation (or as some call it ‘Confession’) is the focus for this first lesson.
