Key dates for First Reconciliation 2022

Our Sacraments for our Parish children are nearing the end for 2022. I would like to thank all those parents and carers who ensured their child’s faith life was enriched.  I would like to thank those parents and carers, the teachers of St Ambrose, Tania Chahoud and other St Ambrose Parishioners who helped out before or during the various Services/Masses making the Sacraments a special day for our children.  And finally, I would personally like to thank each and every candidate who made their Confirmation, Reconciliation, or First Holy Communion this year for completing the work, answering the questions, being attentive to the other children, and just being the happy souls that they should be!  Fr Chaminda and I hope that the ceremonies were a happy and holy time that will be long remembered and cherished.  See you in Mass!

If you feel that there could be changes to how the Sacraments are managed or run, please do not hesitate to contact Fr Chaminda or myself.

If your child is in Year 2, Year 3 or Year 6 in 2023 and therefore looking to make the first Reconciliation, First Holy Communion, or Confirmation, please email me and I will contact you in January 2023 with dates and the process for registration.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation, also known as Penance or Confession, celebrates God’s forgiveness and is a prerequisite to the celebration of First Holy Communion.

First Reconciliation is a parish-based program. To participate in the program a child must be a baptised Catholic.  This sacrament is offered to children from Year 2 onwards.  The program also caters for older children, so if children have missed out in previous years, they are still welcome to enrol.

This program begins in Term 2 of the school year.  it begins with an information evening for parents, and then continues with four 1 hour parish based, group sessions with both child and a parent. 

For more information please contact the Sacramental Coordinator at or 97431023.
