There’s never been anything like BLESSED in the Catholic world for children. With world-class animation, workbooks that are works of art, and catechist-friendly leader guides, First Communion and First Reconciliation prep finally meets children where they are and leads them, step-by-step, to where God is calling them to be.
This programme was developed by the Catholic Diocese of Christchurch to prepare children to receive their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
Children talk about the Gospel story of God our loving Father (Luke15:11-24) as they prepare for Reconciliation.
