Penance is offered every Saturday 4.15-4.45pm at the Church. Come and celebrate one of the two healing sacraments of the church.
Introducing children to the greatness of God’s mercy in the Sacrament of Penance is a two step process. A simple celebration of the second rite of the Sacrament of Penance is included as part of the preparation for First Communion.
In the year when the children turn 10 (Year 5) they are prepared to celebrate more fully the Sacrament of Penance with individual confession and absolution (the first rite). This builds on the work of the previous year as they take the second step and learn in greater detail what it means to examine their conscience.
