Not too long ago, you brought your child to the parish for baptism, a time to welcome him or her into the Christian community. At baptism, you promised to join with the church in nurturing and fostering your child's spiritual growth. Now, as your child prepares for the celebration of first eucharist, you may have many questions: What is the eucharist? What relevance does it have to our family life? How does eucharist call us to Christian service? At Mass, the celebration of eucharist takes place around a table, in company with our parish community. In our homes, we celebrate eucharist in the meals that we share, and in the conversation and activities that we experience with one another. We celebrate eucharist in service to our family, friends, neighbors, and others we encounter in our lives This book is part of a series meant to help you feel "at home" with preparing your children to receive baptism, reconciliation, eucharist, and confirmation. In each of these volumes, you will explore the history, meaning, and ritual of the individual sacraments. Most important, the At Home with the Sacraments series is a practical guide to help you extend the preparation and liturgical celebration of the sacraments into your home, through family activities and prayer.
