Statements of the blindingly obvious

C is doing reconciliation training at the moment at church, before he makes his first confession/reconciliation. It takes about four or five weeks and involves them going to a half hour class each Sunday before Mass. Today we got a little note saying that doing the class is only part of the process and that the kids are expected to come to Mass after the class.

I was amazed. I didn't know you would have to state that kind of thing - if you send your kid to reconciliation training, wouldn't you then go to Mass? Apparently, half the students walked out of the class last week and went out to where their parents were waiting for them in their class, jumped in and drove away...

On that basis why would you bother sending your kid to the classes at all??
