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.
