On Tuesday 22nd November children preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation focused on the next two lessons. They were 'Reconciliation' (To lead to an understanding of our need to admit wrong doing/seek forgiveness/work at making up) and 'The Sacrament of Reconciliation' (To lead the children to understand and appreciate the gifts of God's forgiving love as celebrated in the Sacrament of Reconciliation). The children brought home preparation activities to share with their families. It is so important that these lessons are done as a family. For each theme a number of ideas are given: topics to talk about together,things to do together and suggestions for praying together.
I will also have a catch-up next week with the children.
The children will receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation straight after the 9.30 am Mass. We hope to see many of our school families there as well to help support our children on their next step on their Journey of Faith.
These children will prepare for and receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in Term 2 (Sunday 25th June) and the Sacrament of The Holy Eucharist in Term 3 (20th August).
