The Sacrament of Reconciliation (also known as Confession) is a celebration of God’s love and mercy.
Children in Year 3 and above who are already baptised into the Catholic Church are welcome to start preparing for their First Reconciliation.
They will learn about making good choices, nurturing meaningful relationships and the importance of saying sorry and making peace with one another.
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.
