The sacrament of Reconciliation is the means by which a person who has become conscious of sin may experience the forgiveness and healing of God who is boundless in his mercy.
The sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Confession or Penance, is celebrated at St Paul’s Parish:
- every Saturday in the church from 5pm – 5.45pm;
- each Tuesday from 5pm – 5.45pm (during Adoration);
- each Wednesday from 5pm – 5.45pm (during Adoration)
The minimum age for this sacrament is a child in Year 3. Our Parish runs a joint First Reconciliation/First Eucharist program. This means that all children in Year 3 and above will be able to receive both of these sacraments in the same year. Reconciliation is celebrated during term 2 (late April – late June) and Communion in term 3 (late July – mid September).
The Parent Information Night for 2022 will be held on Wednesday 18 May, at 7pm in the church. All parents/carers who are presenting their children for these sacraments MUST be represented at this gathering, where information on lessons will be given, and enrolment forms distributed. Please contact the Parish Office if you have any queries.
