What is the Sacrament of Reconciliation?

Click here to complete Reconciliation Registration Form

Reconciliation is the sacrament of forgiveness and peace. It is an encounter with Christ that invites us to come home to him, to renew our relationship with him and to rest in his peace. It allows us to hear God's forgiveness in a very personal way.

Celebrating Reconciliation in our Parish

We hope that you take advantage of this wonderful sacrament; it is never too late to experience the healing and forgiveness of God, and the great sense of peace that comes with a right relationship.

Children in our Parish Schools will usually celebrate their First Reconciliation during Year 3 and will undertake a program of formation during that year of education.
Other children wishing to celebrate Reconciliation will also undertake a program of formation prior to receiving the Sacrament. Please make contact with the Parish Office, for more information.
