Video and Reflection


Please watch with your child to prepare for first reconciliation and discuss their thoughts about going to confession. 

Also practice with: How to go to Confession

Please watch this great homily at left on the Eucharist by Fr. Mike Schmitz. You do not need to watch the whole Mass but watch this homily!
