In this Sacrament we celebrate the unconditional mercy of God as we come into the divine presence as wounded, fractured, sinful people and discover that we are loved unconditionally by God whose mercy reaches far beyond any of our shortcomings. So loved, we cannot help but return that love as we realise the greatness of God's tender mercy. The Sacrament is available at any time on request and is scheduled each Saturday afternoon at 5.15pm prior to the Saturday Vigil Mass.
In our program for the children as they prepare for their First Reconciliation, we take them and their parents on a journey of discovery of the mystery of mercy that heals and brings hope to the sinful self we discover as we continue life's journey.
Our program involves a Reflection Evening for parents, two evening sessions involving parents and children and then our ceremonies of Reconciliation.
