I’m looking for some creative ideas for Parent Sacramental Prep “Meetings” for First Reconciliation. My goal is to get away from the all-too-familiar 45-60 minute talk given by the pastor, associate pastor, DRE, or guest speaker, during which the parents sit passively and listen and then are given some logistics about First Reconciliation and sent on their way.
I would like to do something that is more mystagogical – engaging the parents in some reflection and faith sharing on some aspect(s) of the Sacrament.
What creative approaches have you taken or have experienced with regards to Parent Sacramental prep for First Reconcilation? Please share!
