The Catholic Church that we see now has grown because of the efforts that were put in place by the Apostles and the members of the First Christian Communities.
The book helps the children to learn and understand the great efforts and sacrifices that were put in place by the Apostles and the believers in the early church. The book titled “First Christian Communities” is a gentle reminder that the gift of faith that we enjoy has been built up on the martyrdom of many including St Stephen the first martyr for Christ.
With content that has been designed to inspire, this book will surely help your kids appreciate the faith and the community that they belong to.
