Workshops include video and crafts for children, history and sacramental information for parents, and a parent/child session that includes practice reception of the Sacrament.
We encourage all our parish families to attend our workshops, however we are aware that we cannot meet everyone’s schedule. You may attend a parent/child workshop for either 1st Communion or Reconciliation at St. Michael’s church in Bedford if it is more convenient. You would be responsible for contacting them for dates, times, place, and registration. You are also responsible for providing proof of attendance at that workshop to the Good Shepherd Faith Formation office.
When preparing your child for these sacraments of initiation into the Catholic Church you may also ask yourself, "Is my marriage a Sacrament in the Catholic Church?" To help you answer that question, please read this article by our pastor.”
We look forward to your participation in a memorable parent and child Sacrament preparation time.
Please note: This page addresses the formation of children who are preparing to celebrate these Sacraments. If you are an adult seeking Reconciliation and/or 1st communion, please contact Fr Ron Mohnickey at firstname.lastname@example.org or the RCIA page of this web site.
