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

The Baptism and Beyond Parent Guide helps parents to understand the sacrament of baptism and also develop skills to foster the spiritual development of their child in the years between baptism and first eucharist.

Part I examines the symbols and scriptures of baptism and complements Session I in the Leader Guide.

Part II provides easy-to-understand information about the stages of a child's faith development and simple activities to connect their home with the life of the larger church.

Parents are encouraged to use the Parent Guide as an interactive journal and memory book during the initial, formative years of their child's life.

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.

"Kathy Coffey helps parents of young children to express and celebrate their faith as well as celebrate their children. The author is definitely in touch with where families are today and what they need as they prepare their children for baptism. She provides simple, family-friendly, ritually-based ideas for nurturing the faith of young children and for pointing ahead to Eucharist." - Rita Burns Senseman, team member for the North American Forum on the Catechumenate and author of A Child's Journey.
