Under current Covid-19 restrictions, the Sacrament of Reconciliation is only available by request
– just ask to celebrate the sacrament before or after Mass or make an appointment.
Baptised Catholic Children in Year 3 and up are able to begin their preparation for the Sacrament of Reconciliation where they begin to understand that they sometimes make poor choices that prevent them from living in the freedom of a child of God. We call these poor choices sins.
Once a child has celebrated the Sacrament of Reconciliation which restores them in their relationship with God and the community, they are able to then receive the sacrament of Eucharist (First Holy Communion), where they receive the Body of our Lord Jesus under the form of bread.
