First Reconciliation and Beyond is a resource for Catholic parishes.

The Leader Guide contains everything a catechist needs to lead one parents' session and four children's sessions to prepare for celebrating the sacrament of reconciliation. The emphasis is not just on "first reconciliation" but the ongoing experience of growing in relationship with Christ and the Christian community.  

This sessions focus on the theology, scripture, symbols, and experience of the sacramental ritual. The book includes age appropriate activities and discussions for both younger (ages 7-8) and older (ages 9-11) children.  

Use with the Family Activity Book and Child's Book to complement and reinforce the material in the four parish sessions.
