Why Together in Jesus?

When families become involved with a child’s preparation to receive the Sacraments, two things happen—the child’s experience is enriched and parents often have a renewed appreciation of what receiving that Sacrament has meant in their own lives. This shared experience is the key to the Together in Jesus program. Together in Jesus encourages families to talk about what a child learns in class—the stories, the activities, and the instruction about the specific Sacrament. Take-home materials and the “Questions Parents Ask” handout help families understand the Sacrament in a deeper way and support their children when they have questions!

Each Together in Jesus lesson builds carefully on the last. So when the big day arrives, both the child and the family are fully ready to receive, appreciate, and celebrate this great gift.

The Together in Jesus First Reconciliation program has been found to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is complete and affordable, with take-home leaflets for each lesson to get families involved, too.
