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 only for sacraments. The Parent Guide reinforces the material in the two parish sessions. The shorter version prepares for Baptism; the longer version gives parents creative, practical activities to do with their child in the crucial years between Baptism and First Eucharist.
