Reconciliation Home Study

The purpose of this study with your child is to help them experience what it means to know right from wrong, to be sorry, and to make up or reconcile.  They should come to understand everyone’s need to both ask forgiveness and to give forgiveness.  We hope to assist you in preparing your child to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with reverence, understanding, and hope.

Dates are a guide indicating activities to focus on each week.
