Sacramental celebrations are important events in the life of your family. Your child is preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Penance) for the first time. However, you may not recognize this sacrament as you remember it. Sometimes it seems that the Church's understanding is different from yours and many of you have experienced changes in your devotion or witnessed it in others.
In spite of the many pressures and demands that fall on you as parents, I am sure that you would like to do your utmost to help prepare your child for a joyful and grace filled reception of the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
I also urge you to continue sharing your faith with your child by praying and attending Sunday Mass together because as you know, your parental example is most important to your child's faith development.
