Product Description

Children meet the gentle Jesus while they prepare for their first Holy Communion. Written in the engaging pastoral style of the Redemptorists, Meet the Gentle Jesus: First Eucharist sacrament preparation introduces the Mass and the sacrament of the Eucharist in ways that inspire youngsters to take a lifelong journey of knowing and loving Jesus, and to become missionary disciples.

Meet the Gentle Jesus: First Eucharist is a complete curriculum and it is in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The components are:

  • First Eucharist for Children (this book)
  • Catechist Guide, a comprehensive, wraparound leader guide that enables you to plan and teach your program

  • A Child's First Communion...And So Much More , a DVD featuring the popular Fr. Joe Kempf

  4. We Listen to God's Word
  5. We Prepare a Meal and a Sacrifice
  6. We Remember Jesus' Sacrifice
  7. We Gather at the Lord's Table
  8. We Go Forth to Serve God's Family

Each fully illustrated chapter includes:

  • An opening and a closing prayer
  • Two Bible stories that introduce key Catechism concepts
  • Reflection questions
  • Growing in Faith, which helps children apply their learning
  • Your Faith at Home, which asks kids to share their faith with their family
  • Community Time, which asks kids to carry what they've learned to their community so they become the missionary disciples Pope Francis wants them to be
