The Sacrament of Penance, also known as Reconciliation or Confession, celebrates God's forgiveness and is a prerequisite to the celebration of First Holy Communion.

First Reconciliation is a parish-based program. To participate in the program a child must be Catholic.  This sacrament is offered to children from Year 2 onwards.  The program also caters for older children, so if children have missed out in previous years, they are still welcome to enrol.

This program begins in Term 2 of the school year.  it begins with an information evening for parents, and then continues with four 1 hour parish based, small group sessions with both child and a parent.  Each group has a parent leader.

Key dates for 2017 program are as follows

Parent Evening: Thursday 29 June, 7pm at St Ambrose School Hall

Commitment Masses: Weekend of July 1 & 2

Small Group Meetings: Thursday July 20 & 27, August 3 & 10

First Reconciliation Ceremonies: Saturdays August 12,19 & 26 at 2.30pm
