  • At last an informative and attractively designed booklet to explain to todays parents how we celebrate Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist and Reconciliation. 40 full-colour illustrations of the rituals.

    In recent years the trend has been to make sacramental celebrations a parish event and to involve parents in the preparation of their children. This new collaboration has been accompanied by a re-discovery of how the sacraments were celebrated in the early Church.

    As a result the Church now speaks of the process of initiation and sees Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist as steps along the path to becoming full members of the church community. In some dioceses this has meant that Confirmation is now celebrated at the time of First Eucharist rather than at the end of primary school.

    Becoming Catholic sets out in word and illustration to explain to parents the changes that have taken place in the celebration of the sacraments:

    Why is everything different now?

    What does it mean to be part of a Christian community?

    Why do we call Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist, the Sacraments of Initiation?

    What are the different ways of celebrating Reconciliation today?

    How can parents help in the preparation of their children?

    What are the parts of the Mass and how do we participate?

    This is an excellent resource for parish and school sacramental programs. Its inviting design, clear prose and instructive illustrations will ensure parents can confidently participate in their childs sacramental preparation.

    Excellent illustrations by Ian James illustrate all ritual aspects of each sacrament and provide a detailed illustration of all parts of Mass.
