A First Communion Retreat for Parents
Do This in Memory of Me

Author: Kathy Coffey

8.5 X 11" -- 30 pages -- downloadable & reproducible

This retreat is a complete package - all talks, prayers and handouts in one, convenient package. In it, author Kathy Coffey guides parents through three lovely exercises, designed to help them prepare for the Sacrament of Eucharist as their child receives Communion for the first time. Each of these exercises leads to practical ways for the parents to take home and repeat or implement what they are learning.

Do This in Memory of Me is designed for a Saturday or Sunday parish retreat setting, running from about 9 AM to about 3 PM. You may shorten it by simply omitting one of the exercises. You have permission to reproduce this material for use in your own parish. One price pays for the right to make as many copies as you need.
