Reviews from our clients:
"As families prepare together for children to receive the sacraments of initiation, we ask them to find opportunities to minister together as a family. The very scripture we give them as a guide is Matthew 25:40 (Whatever you do for the least of my people, you also do for me.) We plan to use this video with children and their families preparing for Confirmation and First Communion. Even before they begin their family ministry experiences, we are confident that this video will give them a deeper appreciation of those to whom they will minister and provide an means for them to reflect on how they see themselves as someone responding to another person’s needs. The video is a refreshing approach to a familiar topic!"

"The video "When Did We See You" is an excellent resource to use with high school students for a retreat or day of recollection. The video helps youth to understand the concept of discovering the face of God in the people we meet. Bob Kloos's storytelling helps bring alive the concept. Our students especially related to the song that concludes the video. "We used sections of the video on our senior retreats to help them remember the story that you had shared with them on their sophomore day. They were able to remember and were able to get a better understanding and appreciation now that they are older. We thought we might try to video tape the faces of the juniors this year and play Barb's song with their faces in the background on senior retreat next year after we show your video."

Sandy Bailey, DRE at St. Robert’s Parish in Cortland OH used the video with 20 catechists. Sandy said that during the first pause, the women "were moved by the idea of resurrection, coming to life, with John and the puppet and talked about ways that we have to help our students, ourselves, and others come to life." Sandy also stated: "I plan on using it with RCIA this winter."
