Abstract
The parent, child, and faith community relationship is inherent to spiritual growth. Scripture, church history, and liturgical traditions document the primacy of parental involvement. Parents, however, reveal confusion and discomfort with mentoring roles. This thesis project created a survey to examine experiences of Episcopal Church school parents whose children were involved in Communion preparation. The thesis project revealed an improved level of parental comfort having had the opportunity o reflect and reclaim their faith development. Parents welcome a partnership with the faith community in seeking direction.
