Our First Confession and First Communion Notebooks.

I finally got around to taking pictures of the inside of our notebooks for you to see. It's not an existential experience putting these together or anything really terribly exciting- you're over thinking it!!  
 Just start saving your kids (religion) work, Holy Heroes coloring pages, the Advent and Lent Adventures books and pages,  and organize it in a neat way in a binder. I have links to the free pages we printed out to help us along the way- I am pretty sure I got them all in there. Really if you are teaching them their prayers and studying the First Communion Catechism you're doing enough. But this is the physical evidence of your fruits to SHOW the priest what you have been doing outside of your curriculum.

Work from Catechesis of the Good Shepherd over the years.

Free printable worksheets- I have listed on my main page for First Communion. Holy Heroes Stations of the Cross Certificate.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd Work. Hand print angel from Catholic Icing.

7 Sacraments work from Shower of Roses and 7 Sacraments File Folder game from the Catholic Family Conference Children's program.

The inside of the game is a matching game.


Art he made on his own and from Catholic Icing. Smooshed since it's in his notebook.

Genna's notebook now- pretty similar in content.

Writing Prayers from Catholic Icing.

Same pages as Knox.

Grapes and Wheat from Catholic Icing.

Pretty much anything you feel is relevant to your child's religious formation is fair game. You want to show evidence of your studying. 

Our priest met with both our kids for about 15 minutes. He went over general catechism stuff, prayers, 10 Commandments, who is present in the Eucharist, and then randomly a few things he saw in their notebooks he asked questions about. Fr. Ben asked if they knew how to go to Confession as well and asked me to help them make a good examination of conscience. 

On a funny note, Father asked Genna you know your Commandments? How many are there?  She says 7!  lol  My jaw dropped, then she goes oh wait 10! And she listed them all. LOL! Anyway, chalk it up to nervousness. So don't be surprised at what your kids say.

For all my sacrament pages please go here!
