“My brother is a Catholic priest who is supportive of our decision to homeschool these past 4 years. I recently sent with him to read on the plane your section on preparing for First Holy Communion. He wrote to me that he was amazed and impressed with CHC's use of the Prodigal Son thesis to explain the Sacrament of Reconciliation as his order uses this as well, and that your presentation for both child and parent to understand this was truly inspired and right on. He has been astounded by our sons' grasp of the sacraments, knowledge of the saints, and joy of being a Catholic. Thank you CHC for keeping it Catholic! ”

“I think we all benefited from the First Reconciliation and First Eucharist preparation. My older kids couldn't help hear and see what was going on and it was so exciting that we all talked about it a lot. The old stories and beautiful explanations made it an amazing year.”
- Diane, TX
“Preparing my daughter for these holy sacraments was a wonderful experience. My daughter loved the plans and she especially liked making the Holy Mass book. We placed the pages in a small photo album and she often flips through the album admiring her hard work and remembering this important sacramental year.”

“The First Communion Prep Guide is second to none for getting a child ready for both the sacrament of reconciliation and First Communion. I highly recommend.”
- Cindy, FL
“My son loves all of the stories and activities, and I love that he is being prepared deeply, but gently, for this most important moment of his life so far. Thank you so much -- we are having a great year with you! God bless you and keep up the good work you are doing for all of us homeschoolers and for the Lord.”

“Your plans for sacramental preparation are beyond compare. They are gentle yet thorough and sound in catechesis. There is no 'twaddle' or fluff here. I love your slogan - 'Educating for Eternity' - for isn't that the true goal of Catholic education? Thank you for helping us live the faith and pass it on meaningfully to our children.”
- Christine
“The First Communion preparation is so wonderful and so full. It truly digs deep into our beautiful Catholic faith and brings it alive for a child about to receive Our Lord for the first time. The child I used these plans on, I feel, knows more about Our Lord in the Eucharist than my previous children. Thank you for putting so much into these plans.”

“I'm looking forward to using CHC's plans for our daughter's sacramental preparation next year. Last year we used them for our son and couldn't be happier with them. He actually cried from joy after his First Communion! Your materials are such a blessing to the Church. Thanks for everything!”
- Lori, Missouri
“My 2nd grader will be making her First Communion in a few weeks, and I can't tell you how happy I am with your preparation program. She knows and loves our Eucharistic Lord and can't wait to receive Him on that special day. She made her first Confession a few weeks ago and wants to go regularly to keep her soul "pure and clean for Jesus." What a joy!”
- Paula, CO
“We began using CHC materials before becoming Catholic, while we were exploring conversion. Our children were so blessed to have the 2nd grade First Communion prep materials and all benefited from the gentle, orthodox and natural approach to this sacrament. We have so much enjoyed learning as we go, along with CHC materials, which we have trusted with confidence to be faithful to the Magisterium, and which have gently guided our family in integrating the Faith with life and learning.”
- Karen, VA
