The Mass & The Eucharist – PARENT RESOURCES


Use your FORMED Subscription to watch the following videos with your child


Watch these short Bible Story videos to help reinforce Jesus' message of LOVE, COMPASSION & MERCY.

The Story of Zacchaeus – Luke 19:1- 10

This story illustrates how Jesus’ message of Love & Mercy and His salvation was intended for everyone—even an outcast.

The Parable of the Lost Sheep – Luke 15:17

In this parable, Jesus compares God to a shepherd and a sinner to the sheep. Just as the shepherd rejoices on finding his lost sheep, so God rejoices whenever we turn to him for forgiveness after wandering from him through our sin. 

The Prodigal Son – Luke 15:11-32

Just as the father celebrates the homecoming of his lost son, God also rejoices when we confess our sins and our return to him.

The Unforgiving Servant – Matt. 18:21-35

In this parable, Jesus tells us to keep on forgiving and to have mercy on others.  He forgives us all the time for small and big things so why wouldn’t we forgive others just the same.  It’s not always easy but it’s what God wants us to do!

Jesus Heals the Paralytic – Mark 2:1-12

Jesus knew what this man needed most because He knew what was in his heart. Jesus knew that being paralyzed was difficult but it was even worse not to be forgiven.

Dear Parents,
Thank you for bringing your child to our First, First Communion Session! We had a great time with your child! The session went by quickly, but we feel that we were able to cover a lot. One of the most important takeaways is the need for regular, daily prayer and the importance of developing and maintaining a strong friendship with Jesus…
