This new DVD featuring Fr. Joe Kempf contains two programs--one for children as they prepare for their first experience of the Eucharist and one for the adults guiding them along the way.
For Children: Whether preparing for their 1st or 1500th Communion, children will be changed by the holiness, humor, and insight in a 4-part, 23-minute segment. Learning the fundamentals of our Catholic faith will inspire them to love the Mass, God, and each other more than ever.
For Adults: A 3-part, 57-minute segment will recharge your presence at Mass and your relationship with Jesus. Parents, grandparents, and teachers will be renewed in their Eucharistic understanding as they teach children the joy and challenge to be found in this incredible gift called "Eucharist."
Great First Communion Resource
I had the opportunity to review "A Child's First Communion And So Much More" featuring Father Joe Kempf. There are two sections to this DVD. In the first section entitled "For Adults", Father Joe explains to parents the importance of Communion and reasons that they should attend Mass regularly and take Communion. In the second section, entitled "For Children", Father Joe and Big Al explain Communion to the children. At the end there is a guided opportunity for children to silence themselves and meditate. Although this DVD is entitled "A Child's First Communion", it is appropriate for children of all ages and helps to send home the message that the Eucharist is really Jesus' body and blood and that we must recieve it often and with reverence.
My middle son will be recieving his First Communion this April. I am very excited fo Full Review...
