This is a flexible-schedule retreat and plan for the final rehearsal for parents and their children as they prepare to receive Holy Communion for the first time.
Parents and children live together most of the time. They encounter one another daily. Even if the family is split between more than one home, they’re in touch with each other frequently.
But in this final retreat and rehearsal for First Holy Communion, we want to give them a unique experience of being together, one in which we coach the parents to talk with their child about faith. This final lesson before Holy Communion will be formation that lasts a lifetime, for both the parents and their kids.

Schedules and outlines for both smaller parishes or larger ones
