Confession is not terribly fun, but very important.

Home activities:

  • Review the story of the Prodigal Son; color his icon and place it in your icon corner. Sing his song.
  • Have you memorized the Lord’s Prayer yet? Work on it.
  • Put the icon of Jesus that your child cleaned in class in the icon corner.
  • On Saturday night especially, prepare for Liturgy by confessing (privately or within the family); go to Confession with your child if he is old enough (It’s Lent, right?)

Prayer: Pray the Lord’s prayer, with special emphasis on “Forgive us our sins…”
