Reconciliation is a sacrament of healing. Reconciliation enables us to receive God's unconditional love and forgiveness.

The Sacrament of First Reconciliation is a Parish based coordinated program.  This approach acknowledges the important role of parents and families in the whole preparation process as parents are the first educators of children in their faith.The Parish Sacramental Team, St Patrick's Primary School staff, Catechists and the parish community support families during the program.  In this partnership, the spiritual development of a child can be nourished and grown.  We hope that families enjoy the family-centred Sacramental Program and experience a warm sense of belonging.  If you have any enquiries regarding the program, please do not hesitate to contact the parish office.


Candidates must be baptised Catholic, be seven years of age or older, and be in Year 3 or above. Reconciliation is usually the next sacrament following Baptism.
