Preparing to Receive Jesus: A Hands-On Religion Resource

Preparing to Receive Jesus, Second Edition is a supplemental religion resource with hands-on activities and inspirational stories designed to help your child "take to heart" the catechism lessons he is learning in preparation for receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Eucharist. The course is not intended to replace your child's catechism lessons but to develop and enrich them.

Sections in this resource:

  • Reconciliation
  • Holy Mass
  • Preparing Our Hearts to Receive Jesus

Above: Sample pages from the full-color Packet


The revised, second edition consists of two parts:

The non-consumable BOOK contains the inspirational short stories and lesson-by-lesson directions for completing the hands-on projects. 8½"x11" Black and white. Spiral-binding. 70 pgs.
The full-color consumable PACKET includes the Holy Mass Book Project templates, color images, and other illustrative materials needed to complete the projects described in the Book. 8½"x11" Full color. Tear-off pad, shrink-wrapped. 82 pgs.

A family or group using Preparing to Receive Jesus, Second Edition will only need to purchase one Book, while each student using the course will need his own Packet. Lessons are designed to be completed at a rate of one per week, for 21 weeks, but they can be accelerated to several lessons per week if need be.

“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.”

“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! ”
