“Among the Sacraments, certainly Reconciliation renders present with particular efficacy the merciful face of God: it is constantly and ceaselessly made real and manifest.”

Pope Francis 2015

Work will soon commence on a new confessional at Paddington and an upgrade to the confessional at Edgecliff. The purpose is to bring our community in line with Diocesan Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy. In the meantime the sacrament of reconciliation will be celebrated on request in the main body of the church.

First Reconciliation: Programme for school aged children held yearly. Please visit our Sacramental Programme for more details.

Second Rite of Reconciliation: Held during Advent and Lent. Please see Mass Times during Holy Week & Christmas for details.

If you would like to celebrate the sacrament of reconciliation please see the Priest before or after Mass or contact the Parish Office to arrange a suitable time.
