Celebrating Our Faith is an exciting new series for sacramental preparation. Following the Order of the Mass and the communal Rite of Reconciliation, each chapter incorporates a major movement of the rite, a Scripture story, an activity, and prayer. The Family Guides were created for parishes where children are prepared for First Eucharist and First Reconciliation in neighborhood clusters or at home by adult family members. Each Family Guide contains: -- family preparation pages that offer instruction on teaching the material in the Child's Book -- a scope and sequence for the complete series -- information on preparing a child for the other Sacraments of Initiation -- ways to use the resources at the back of the Child's Book -- Sharing Pages for an ongoing project to summarize each chapter's theme and additional at-home prayer and activities
In many parishes, this is an important time of preparation for children who will
make their first Holy Communion during the Easter season and for young people preparing for the sacrament of Confirmation. See below under The Rite of Penance ...

Is it ever appropriate for non-Catholic Christians to receive Holy Communion at a Catholic Mass? What should a pastor do to preserve the holiness and the purpose of Communion? What happens when a non-Catholic receives Holy Communion? How should a Catholic pastor respond to non-Catholics who wish to have communion without conveying harshness, scrupulosity, legalism, or rudeness? Intended to help Christians recognize the present provisional norms and to see new possibilities in eucharistic sharing, Communion with Non-Catholic Christiansexamines the risks, challenges, and opportunities involved in the admission of communion to non-Catholic Christians. Communion with Non-Catholic Christiansbegins by defining eucharistic sharing. It assists Catholics and non-Catholics in understanding the present discipline of eucharistic sharing or receiving Holy Communion outside of one's own church. Secondly, it looks at what caution should be taken in eucharistic sharing, the values at stake, and the reasons for more open eucharistic sharing for Christian unity. Finally, it looks at the opportunities in eucharistic sharing and the possibility of full communion. By focusing on liturgical law and pastoral practices, this book moves the discussion of the admission of communion forward to new possibilities for growth in communion. Chapters are: "What is Eucharistic Sharing?" "Risks, or Some Reasons for Caution in Eucharistic Sharing," "Challenges, or Some Reasons for a More Open Eucharistic Sharing," and "Opportunities, or Sharing the Eucharist in Hope for Full Communion."
