“Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labours for their conversion.” (CCC 1422)

Preparing for First Reconciliation

The preparation for First Reconciliation is open to all children entering year 3 and above, for both children in Catholic and non catholic schools.

The preparation also combines that of the First Holy Communion. It starts in September and finishes just before the academic end-of-year the following year.

Children make their First Reconciliation during Lent, on a Saturday afternoon.

The next preparation will begin by July or at the start of the new academic year.
