First Reconciliation

Parents, you are the domestic church as we have mentioned.  It is our prayer that you will set intentional time aside to keep the Sabbath Day Holy and join us online through Livestream.  In the Hebrew tradition of the seder meal, the youngest child asks the father, 'What makes this night different?".   In the Christian tradition, Sunday is different because this day belongs to God.  We celebrate that by intentionally spending time in prayer and community (your family community at this time until we are able to return to parish family community) to recognize the great gifts that God has poured out for us, namely, His Son Jesus.  You are encouraged to help your children continue to build that relationship through prayer and listening to the Word of God and to grow in that love.
 
 

The sacrament of Penance is an encounter with the mercy of God. It is a recognition that one has failed in their relationship with God and the Church. It is the very essence of the reason that Christ came and died for us. If your child is in Grade 2 then complete the registration form and submit to the office. Attendance at a First Reconciliation parent meeting is required. If you are a person beyond Grade 2 and wish to celebrate this sacrament, please fill out the form, indicate that you are beyond Grade 2 and you will be contacted by a Parish Priest for preparation before receiving this sacrament for the first time. Baptismal certifiactes can be scanned as a PDF and emailed to the Parish Office.​The Fee for the Sacramental materials is $25. This can be paid at the Parish or via the DONATE page on the website.

If your child is not Baptised, please contact Debbie Walsh, Pastoral Minister dwalsh@dol.ca
