After the success of last week’s competition, Veritas have kindly decided to sponsor another one! They have given us five copies of another new addition to their catalogue, “Preparing for First Reconciliation  – A Guide for Families“. Written by Elaine Mahon, the book is the first in a two-part series designed to help parents and families prepare for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Eucharist with their children. It takes a step-by-step approach to the Sacrament of Reconciliation using accessible, child-friendly language and illustrations, and emphasises the sacrament as a joyful moment of healing with God and with each other. The book is divided into eight parts, each ending with a ‘PJ Prayer’ to be said before bed. The book is in full colour with child-friendly illustrations. While it is essentially a guide for families, it would also be a great resource for the school library or for the 2nd class teacher.

To be in with a chance to win one of these books for yourself or your school, simply fill in the form below with your details and answers to the questions. All of the questions relate to the Sacrament of Reconciliation. All entries for the competition must be in by 5pm this Thursday October 4th. Only one entry per teacher is permitted. To give a chance to all, winners of last week’s competition are ineligible to take part. Winners will be announced on Twitter after this time. Please make sure that you give a contact email address that you can be contacted on, on Thursday/Friday. Again, many thanks to Veritas for sponsoring the books for this competition. Good luck to all.
