Greetings of Peace! First Eucharist and First Reconciliation are truly the gifts of love. We here at the parish are excited to journey with you and your family as you prepare for the celebration of these sacraments. With any journey, there are always moments to pause, seek direction, think about the next best steps, and continue forward. Below is a small sampling of the resources available to you and your family across all ages to help you do just that. Should you need assistance with any of these resources, please contact the Family Formation team.
For our younger members (2nd -5th grade)
Our Sunday Visitor Call to Celebrate: Reconciliation and Eucharist
This workbook is a great family resource for parents and children to complete together. Filled with prayers for all occasions, vocabulary, mass responsorials, and questions to explore in preparation for Reconciliation and Eucharist, parents and children both benefit from this tool. Please contact Dawn Eagan at email@example.com to reserve a copy for pick-up in the Siena Offices.
For our teens and young adults
Busted Halo is an online Catholic magazine for spiritual seekers. They find funny and modern ways to approach questions about the faith.
For young adults and adults (16+ years)
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has put together varied resources and videos to help support you as first teachers of faith and also those who are young adults seeking an adult understanding.
American Catholic is a Franciscan Website partnered with Franciscan Media to bring you easy to read resources about the Catholic Faith.
Peace and All Good Things,
Coordinator of Family Formation
