Curriculum includes seven sessions. Each presents good news of salvation offered through Jesus Christ, with a focus on helping the children understand intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally that the Sacrament of Reconciliation is a real encounter with Jesus Christ who desires to forgive and heal us at the deepest levels of our humanity. Activities, Scripture, videos and stories are provided to engage both the mind and the heart so the child can come to fully understand the gift of grace and mercy offered through the sacrament. The program recognizes that it is in the Christian family that the faith is first learned. Family Take Home pages are provided with each session in English and Spanish. A detailed teaching guide provides instructions for parent sessions using Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession, the series about the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
