Reconciliation




“The sacrament of Reconciliation was previously called the sacrament of penance and words such as confession and confessional were commonly used. Confession names only one part of the sacrament, while reconciliation names what is most important about the sacrament: the forgiveness of our sins by God.” ~ J. Springer 2010 p5

It is the practice in the Archdiocese of Sydney that children receive the sacrament of reconciliation in year 2. It is the practice of the Church that children be prepared for this sacrament before receiving their First Holy Communion.
