First Reconciliation

In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, we receive the gift of God’s mercy offered to us through his Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus announced the Good News of God’s forgiveness and brought peace to sinners. Through the Paschal Mystery, Christ redeemed us from sin and opened for us the promise of Salvation. After his Resurrection, Jesus entrusted to the Apostles the power to forgive sins so that the Church could continue the ministry of reconciliation. When we celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, our sins are forgiven by the power of the Holy Spirit, and we are restored to friendship with God. We receive God’s peace and the strength to live as followers of Jesus.

  • First Reconciliation begins promptly at 9:29am, please heed the suggested time of 9:15am to ensure you have time to sign in and find a seat.
  • Your child will be assigned one of two dates: January 28th or February 4th. If you cannot attend your assigned date, please contact the Religious Education office and we will gladly switch dates.
  • Parents are welcome to receive Reconciliation on that day as well, but we ask that you allow all the children to go first.
