Baptism and Beyond is a sacramental preparation resource for Catholic parishes.

The Leader Guide contains everything a catechist needs to lead two parent sessions.

The first session prepares parents for the celebration of baptism by breaking open the symbols and scriptures of the rite.

The second session looks back on baptism and forward to first eucharist, with helps for parents to be the child's primary religious educators during the years in between.

This book includes creative ways to link the church with the home to keep parents and their child connected to the parish between sacraments, not just for sacraments.

You can use the Parent Guide to reinforce the material in the two parish sessions.

Kathy Coffey is the author of Children and Christian Initiation, Confirmed: Anointed and Sealed with the Spirit, Experiencing God with Your Children, and God in the Moment: Making Every Day a Prayer. Kathy frequently leads retreats and workshops across the country.

"This book is exactly what catechists have been asking for: a preparation process based on the Rite of Baptism for Children. Parents and pastoral ministers alike will find this book realistic, easy-to-use and bursting with ideas for making baptism preparation a meaningful and memorable experience." - Rita Burns Senseman, member for the North American Forum on the Catechumenate and author of A Child's Journey.
