Hello and welcome to the first in our special series on the Sacraments! For Catholics, Sacraments are a big deal. They are major maturing milestones in our faith life, and often the centre of our communal life. Despite their centrality, many parents feel ill-equipped to prepare their children for the Sacraments, relying instead almost solely on the parish and Catholic school. Over the coming year, CathFamily will dedicate an edition to each of the seven Sacraments with a mind to provide parents with practical tips and helpful insights so that you can better participate in the preparation of your children for the greatest gift you will ever give them, their faith through the sacraments. P.S. You can also embed CathFamily into your school Newsletter or Parish website. Simply click the ‘Share’ button at the top menu and select ‘Embed’. Then all you have to do is copy and paste the code into your post.
