Friends

 

Christians believe that, in Jesus Christ, the world has been reconciled to God. Through Christ we are offered the power to forgive and make peace and to receive and offer reconciliation. Relationships bring both joy and challenge.

 

Scripture: John 15:15 I call you friends.

 

Catechism of the Catholic Church: 1468 the sacrament of Reconciliation with God brings about a true ‘spiritual resurrection’, restoration of the dignity and blessings of the life of the children of God, of which the most precious is friendship with God.

 

Through this theme children will come to learn and understand how to make good friends, that Jesus had good friends, and  what Jesus tells us about friendship.
