This is a great opportunity to update your general RE handbook (Word file).  A comprehensive template for the parish Faith Formation program. (Mahalo to advisers Sr. Mercedita Estrella, SPC and Julia Torres)

Sacrament Preparation Handbook

Using this template, create a handbook (Word file) specifically for parents of children who are preparing for Reconciliation, Confirmation, and Eucharist. The template includes references to the new Norms for the Sacraments of Initiation and videos on the sacraments. (Thanks again, Sr. Mercy and Julia!)
