Jesus Comes to Me
Preparation for First Confession and First Holy Communion
Jesus Comes to Me is a clear, comprehensive and fun guide for children aged 6-8 who are preparing for their First Confession and First Communion. Ideal for use in parishes, schools and at home, it introduces the essential elements of the Catholc Faith in a simple and clear way, assuming little or no prior knowledge.
The book explains who Christ was, how he came to forgive sins, and how he remains with us through the Chrurch and especially the Mass. This conveys the true importance of the sacraments of Confession and the Eucharist. It also includes pictures to colour and exercises to engage the child and reinforce what has been learnt.
