Traditionally known as Confession, and also called the Sacrament of Penance, Reconciliation is one of the seven sacraments of the Catholic Church.
Your child will be helped to make their first reconciliation together with their peers when they are in Year 2. The celebration of the sacrament will take the form of a communal service where we gather together to acknowledge God’s mercy and love. Within this communal service, each child will make their individual confession and receive absolution from the ministering priest.
Parents of Year 2 children in Parish and local government schools should keep up to date with information about the Sacrament of Reconciliation 2021 via the website, Facebook page, and school correspondence.
