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.
