Preparing for Christ In Us: A Sacrament Preparation Refresher

Video Series


Deacon Matt Halbach, PhD, presents a refresher to support your child’s preparation for First Penance and Holy Communion. Drawing on content from Sadlier's newest K–6 catechetical program, Christ In Us, this video series includes an overview, lessons on the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Penance, how to go to confession and receive Holy Communion, and best practices for faith formation in the home.
