Preparation for the Sacraments is far more than an intellectual pursuit. The whole person — mind, body, heart, and spirit — must be addressed.
Therefore, the process of preparation is placed in the context of a journey. Journeys are full of surprises. Preparing for the sacraments may lead us and our children to search, to affirm, to better appreciate, and to struggle with questions about our faith. It is likely that we will experience all these surprises at some point during the journey.
