First Reconciliation and Beyond is a resource for Catholic parishes.

This colorful, interactive book invites parents and children to deepen their understanding of the Mystery of Christ celebrated in the sacrament of reconciliation. Each of the activities stresses the ongoing experience of growing in friendship with Christ and encourages interaction of the whole family through scripture reading, storytelling, prayer and outreach.

The Family Activity Book can be used with the Child's Book to complement and reinforce the four sessions found in the Leader Guide or can be used by itself as the guide for parents to prepare their child at home for the sacrament.
