February 15, 2024, Detroit – Is one of your children preparing for First Communion or Confirmation this Spring? The latest booklet by Sister Janet Schaeffler, OP, Family Faith Conversations for Living Eucharist and Reconciliation, can help you to hove conversations with your children as they prepare for the sacrament – or to participate in Mass and the Sacraments in daily life.

Research has shown that parents can profoundly influence their children’s faith simply by speaking with them regularly about their own faith journey. “This booklet is designed to help you, as parents, engage in conversation with your child(ren) as you – by your conversations and your life – continually draw attention to God’s presence in their lives,” Sister Janet wrote in the introduction.

It's so important for families to have open and meaningful conversations about faith, especially during these significant milestones in a child's spiritual journey.
