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.
Please Note: – Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, which were scheduled to commence 1st August 2021, have been affected by the lockdown restrictions we are all facing at this present moment. As a result we will need to delay both our preparation lessons and the actual Sacrament dates. Once the lockdown is lifted, and we can make some decisions, please rest assured that we will notify you of the new dates. Please email the parish office if you have any questions regarding these sacraments.
