Prayers and Teachings
Looking for something to do to build your child's faith knowledge Work with them on memorizing these Prayers and Teachings of the Catholic Church at home. They can recite them at the Prayer Station for a prize or to help raise money for the poor. Here's a link to the Prayers and Teachings.
Has it been a while since you went to confession? Here is a guide.
The Church recommends that we confess our sins to a priest through the sacrament of reconciliation at least once per month. For many of us, the length between confessions might be much longer and we might worry that we forgot "how" to go to confession. A priest will help you know what to say, but if you'd like a written guide, consider printing one of these and bringing it with you.
