The Sacrament of Penance (also known as Reconciliation or Confession) celebrates God’s forgiveness and is a pre-requisite to the celebration of First Holy Communion.
To participate in this program, a child must be Catholic (either Baptised Catholic or received into the Catholic Church from another denomination).
Until now this sacrament has been offered to children from Year 2 onwards. This will no longer be the case. From 2021 First Reconciliation will be offered to children in Year 3 at the same time as they are preparing for First Holy Communion.
Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, will be held later in the year (2022) A parent Information evening will be held in our parish lobby on Wednesday 21st September 2022 at 6.00pm. Letters to all the schools with information of dates & lessons will be distributed early Term 3.
Please email the parish office if you have any questions regarding these sacraments.
