A new resource for a Reconciliation service with young people in the parish or school, with families and young people or just with young people.
Reconciliation for young people... a toolkit.
This resource was prepared by the Department of Pastoral Formation With You Always
in association with Animate Youth Ministries, and developed by a group of teachers, chaplains, parents, deacons and priests for use with young people and families in the Archdiocese of Liverpool.
The resource comes in a handy ring binder with laminated section inserts and full colour printing.
How to use this resource
The resource is flexible and adaptable.
It is a tool kit from which you can pick and choose various elements to prepare a Reconciliation service for various contexts.
Included are 3 Sample Services of Reconciliation for Young People. These Sample Services can be rearranged to create a Reconciliation service that is right for your parish or school, and the age of the young people with whom you are working.
There are also suggestions for including parents and families in Reconciliation services.
Included in the resource are ideas for prayer stations to use during a Reconciliation service. The movement of young people between prayer stations alone or with a friend adds variety and real opportunities for engagement. A catechist at each station keeps the young people motivated and directed.
The Appendix offers suggested activities and music.
