The time parents spend in preparation for their child's celebration of the First Communion is extremely important. This video is for those helping prepare the children for this sacrament. This video includes a 4-minute introduction for staff and a four part presentation for parents. Part One- Like a truly loving parent, God longs to care for us. In the Eucharist, God feeds the deepest hungers of our hearts through the gathering itself, the Word proclaimed to us, and the sharing of the Body and blood of Christ. Part Two- The Eucharist sends us out to offer the world the same type of love we have received ourselves. In this section, Father Joe Kempf discusses the importance of the role of parents in the faith lives of their children and offers some ways that they might help their children prepare for Eucharist. Part Four- In a tender and moving guided prayer meditation, we are invited to see again the quiet presence of God in our own family and in the Eucharist.
