Here are some of the resources we love and use in our home when preparing a child for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion!

Jesus Time Card – This simple tool teaches young children how to have personal prayer time, $2 download!

Patron Saint of First Communicants: The Story of Blessed Imelda Lambertini – I cried at the end of this book. So good! Use code KatieCatholic-15 for 15% off of the book at the link.

Daily Examen Notepad: I love the “roses and thorns” method for teaching the daily examen to young children, especially leading up to First Reconciliation!

Holy Mass: On Earth As It Is In Heaven – We absolutely love these lego catechisms, including The Catechism of the Seven Sacraments book by the same authors. I also love the inexpensive Pocket Guide to Reconciliation from the same author!

Adoration Journal for KidsMy kids love using this on their visits to Eucharistic Adoration!

“Let the Children Come to Me” – Every child needs to hear Blessed Imelda’s beautiful story, and we love this short dramatized audio version!

First Communion & First Penance Lapbooks – These paper doll sets are super handy for sacramental practice or just faith formation in general!

Stories of the Blessed Sacrament – Another favorite item of my kids to bring along to the adoration chapel or personal prayer time.

Heavenly Hosts: Eucharistic Miracles for Kids – I can’t tell you how much we love the stories in this book. They leave such a powerful impression leading up to First Holy Communion.

“Blessed” First Communion & First Reconciliation DVDs – These are short, entertaining animated segments rife with content to help with sacramental prep discussions. Renewed & Received are sacramental preparation programs from Ascension Press. I’ve only seen short excerpts, but they also look wonderful.

Renewed by Jesus: My Guide to Reconciliation – This is a great resource to use for examination of conscience and other helpful preparatory reading leading up to Confession.

The Mass Unit Study – This beautiful resource by Into the Deep is such a gentle, reverent, catechetical exploration of the Holy Mass. Another favorite way to prep my children for their First Holy Communion.
