This newly revised edition of We Prepare for Reconciliation features attractive, contemporary new design, built around colour-coded, easy-to-follow themes. Still present are the short, thought-provoking, colourful sidebars that invite children, parents, and catechists to enter the mysteries of faith more deeply, to pray more often, and to experience the sacrament of Reconciliation more fully as joy-filled encounters with Jesus Christ.


Written, edited, and revised by the most respected catechists in Canada and the United States, We Prepare for Reconciliation is an essential resource to prepare children for the sacrament. The series carries the official Imprimatur from Archbishop Thomas Collins of Toronto.


•Includes additional 16-page pullout Family Guide
