During this holy period of lent, Year 3 have been preparing to receive the sacrament of reconciliation. The children understand why this sacrament is important so they can obtain absolution for the sins they have committed against God and their neighbour and can become reconciled with the community of the Church.
At Holy Cross church Father Stan warmly welcomed Class 3 as they attended mass and then the children made their first confession. Following their confession, each child had to place a candle on the altar and say a penance to be forgiven by God. To close the ceremony Father Stan presented the children with their certificates.
