The Word Among Us

New! "Something More" Family Faith Series

Parents, this time of sacramental preparation is not only an important time for your child but also an opportunity for you to reflect on this great gift that your child is receiving, perhaps renewing our own understanding of the sacrament or perhaps experiencing its deep meaning for the first time yourself.

For pastors and faith formation directors, the resources in the Family Faith Series will guide your parishioners and their children to experience the sacraments in a life-changing way.

In each four-session booklet, parents are reintroduced to the Lord and his desire to experience a relationship with them, as well as catechetical foundations for their faith and practical ways to share their faith with their children.

Each booklet can be used individually or within a small group.

Edited by popular author and speaker Mark Hart, each of the four sessions includes:

  • A foundational Scripture reading
  • Insightful, easy-to-understand commentary
  • Questions for reflection
  • A parent’s prayer
  • Family activities

These booklets are especially intended for individuals or sacramental preparation groups that have limited time but are looking for a life-changing experience of the sacraments.
