Looks like you put a lot of work into it. I think that it would work in a smaller "classroom" setting, or even a smaller retreat, but I was looking for more of parish wide parent/child retreat. So, it just wasn't was I was hoping for I have a large group with 4 classes combined. Wish I could have seen more of it before purchasing.
On  October 8, 2012Rhea Hristou answered:
We actually have used it both ways. By separating the kids into groups and using the activities with high school students as helpers we have been able to accommodate large groups and then gather together for the beginning and ending activities. It is a great way to incorporate your high school students that may need community service hours.
Hope you can make it work....it really is a fun day!

Hello, I just purchased this book and noticed that some of the pages are not pdfs, but are shortcuts to the pdf files. They will not open when i try to double click them. The pages in question are : "2 First communion retreat information page", "18.6 first communion bread", and "18.7 first communion bread note". Thank you in advance for taking the time to reply to my concern.
