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.
Dramas—The essence of each sacrament is presented through a heartwarming story of family and friends.
Informational/How-To Videos—My mug appears in these videos as I lead viewers through an explanation of the rite, along with what to expect, and help families walk step by step through each sacrament.
God’s Gift Chapter-by-Chapter Tracks—Master catechists share key faith concepts through engaging mini lessons.
Personal Testimonials—Catholics of all ages share real-life stories of the grace they found in celebrating each sacrament.
God’s Gift Prayers and Practices—Video tutorials help children take to heart prayers and practices of our faith.
