Enrolment for First Reconciliation (First Confession) in 2022 is now closed.
Information for the Families of Enrolled Candidates
Preparation for the sacrament requires 5 sessions of approximately an hour each, which will take place on the following Saturday afternoons at 4pm at church:
As we follow the Diocesan model of Family Catechesis, one or both parents must attend the preparation sessions with their child.
The children will be expected to complete a small amount of homework, with help from their family, between the sessions.
They will receive the sacrament after school in the week beginning March 14th, on a day to be decided.
Attendance at Sunday Mass is essential. Attendance at the Preparation Sessions alone will not guarantee reception of the sacrament. The children will each be given a ‘Mass Passport’ which will be signed by Father Neil or a catechist after each Mass attended.
These children celebrated their First Reconciliation on March 24th 2021.
