First Reconciliation and Beyond is a resource for Catholic parishes.

The Child's Book contains what the child needs to prepare for celebrating first reconciliation. It helps the child deepen the learning that begins in the parish sessions and is reinforced at home by activities with the other household members using the Family Activity Book. It is coordinated with the four parish sessions, following the same themes and scripture stories.

The book is designed:

  • To be taken to class and used to practice what is said and done in the sacrament of reconciliation
  • To be used later at home to reinforce the learning begun in the parish session

The Child's Book is meant to be more personal or individual in use in contrast to the whole household approach of the Family Activity Book. The child is encouraged to think about the scripture story, respond to it by reflection and prayer, practice what is said and done to celebrate the rite and think about becoming a reconciling person in everyday life.

Each session encourages a "Time to Talk" when the child shares with a parent, mentor or friend about the content of the session.
