New DVDs for Sacramental Preparation: God’s Gift

God's Gift resources for sacramental preparation

I am very excited to tell you about a new DVD series for sacramental preparation—a project that I was privileged to be intimately involved with from writing scripts to hosting segments! This new video series enhances instruction and parent involvement in sacramental preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. As part of the God’s Gift 2016 program, these DVDs are to be used in retreats, parent meetings, faith-formation sessions and more. There are five DVDs per sacrament. Each DVD has the tracks in English and Spanish. Each set comes with its own “how-to” guide, offering discussion questions and activities as well as suggestions for when to use the videos. View the sample clips below.

DVD 1
Dramas—The essence of each sacrament is presented through a heartwarming story of family and friends.
