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;
  • each Tuesday from 5.15 – 5.45pm (during Adoration);
  • on first Saturdays  from 11am – 12noon.

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. Reconciliation is celebrated during term 2 (late April – late June) and Communion in term 3 (late July – early 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.
