The celebration of First Reconciliation is an important stage in our Sacramental Programme and normally takes place in Year Two. Reconciliation is a sacrament of faith, forgiveness and mercy where we learn how to make good choices in the exercise of our free will.

In order to help your child understand the significance of this occasion, it is, of course, necessary for them to complete a period of preparation and formation. If your child attends St Francis of Assisi Regional Primary School, the preparation is undertaken at the school. If this is not the case, it will be necessary for your child to undertake a formation programme with the Parish. Currently this programme is run in partnership with parents/guardians and the details of this are provided at our Information Session. Please note, completion of this programme is compulsory for all candidates.

The First Reconciliation Programme is closed for 2019. If you would like to receive information about the programme in 2020 please email Ruth at administration@stfrancis-stjoseph.com with your child’s details and we will be in contact early next year.
