PARENTS AS THE PRIMARY CATECHISTS


Journeying together - Parents accompanying their children attending Holy Mass
Tawau : The Children Liturgy and Sunday School teachers of Holy Trinity Church organized a Eucharistic camp for children receiving their first holy communion on Tuesday, 17th May 2011 at the church basement hall.
Involving two main language groups - Bahasa Malaysia and English,  about 200 participants including their parents took part in the half-day event.


 
The Camp began with  a Holy Mass presided by Fr. David Garaman, the assistant rector. Both readings were proclaimed by the children.

After the mass, Fr. David Garaman, Sr Liza fsic and Sr Tauria fsic shared with the parents regarding "being the first catechists in the family"
They were later shown a documentary "Miracles of the body of Christ" meant to enhance more reverence while receiving Holy Communion. After which, a group discussion was held, based on the lead question "What changes have the Eucharist made in my life?"

For the children, they were given a slide show of  "Miracles of the Eucharist"  followed by input on the following: 
1. What is Holy Communion?
2. When does consecration take place and what are the signs given during the mass?
3. What is the Sacrament of Penance? Why do we need it?



Igniting the faith of  young Catholics

It is hoped that through this camp, the  faith of the young people will be enriched and they will come to receive the Blessed Sacrament with reverence.

The camp ended at 1 pm with a fellowship.
