The preparation for and celebration of the Sacrament of Penance will deepen your child’s understanding of the gift of God’s mercy and forgiveness, and the Christian practice of forgiveness in family, faith and community life. A simple celebration of the Sacrament of Penance was included as part of the sacramental preparation for First Communion. As per the Sacramental Policy of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, children in Year 5 are prepared to celebrate more fully the Sacrament of Penance with individual confession (Reconciliation) and absolution.
The Child and Parent Preparation Session will be held on Friday 14th October at 3:30pm in the Church. Similar to preparation for Confirmation and Eucharist, the children will work through a Preparation Booklet at home during the weeks leading up to the celebration of the Sacrament of Penance – the booklet will be handed out at the Child and Parent preparation session.
The first step in the preparation process is to complete the online enrolment form (click here) and forward the completed Parental Authority Form (below) and receipt of donation to firstname.lastname@example.org or the parish office by Thursday 6th October.
