Reconciliation is a place where the garbage in our lives can encounter the mercy of God…

The sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Confession or Penance, is celebrated at St Paul’s Parish every Saturday in the church from 5pm – 5.30pm and each Tuesday from 5.15 – 5.45pm (during Adoration), and on the first Saturday from 11am – 12noon.

Additionally, the communal celebration of the sacrament (2nd Rite) is celebrated before Easter and Christmas.

First Reconciliation

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. In 2020, Reconciliation will be celebrated during term 2 (late May – early July) and Communion in term 3 (August – September).

Parent Information Nights (where enrolment forms and additional information are distributed) are advertised in advance, through the schools and the Parish Bulletin, and attendance at preparation classes is compulsory.

Dates for the 2020 Reconciliation program will be available soon


Dates and sessions for First Reconciliation TBA

You can also receive the sacrament during the standard Parish times (Tuesday 5:15pm; Saturday 5pm)
