The Sacrament of Reconciliation was described by Pope Francis as a special way to enable people to touch the grandeur of God’s mercy with their own hands.
During Week Two of this term, many of our Year Three children received this beautiful sacrament for the first time. They then celebrated, with family and friends, during the weekend’s Thanksgiving Masses.
Thank you to Miss Tiana Massimi and Miss Chantelle Goodall for their special efforts in preparing the children and journeying, with families, throughout the sacramental program. We sincerely thank Mrs Lyn Harkins, our Parish Sacramental Coordinator.
Thank you, also, to Father Chien and Father Giovanni for their valuable input to preparations and for their spiritual guidance.
We hope this sacrament will continue to be a source of comfort, peace and renewal for them all now and into the future.
