Sacrament of Reconciliation

 

St Agnes' Primary School prepares for a special service once a year for children wishing to receive their Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time.

 

For your child to receive their Sacrament of Reconciliation, they must be baptised.

 

If your child does not attend St Agnes' Primary School and you would like your child to receive their Sacrament of Reconciliation, please contact the Parish Office.

Reconciliation

 

The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation

Confessions are heard on Saturdays at 9am to 10am

 

What does the Church teach?

“Those who approach the sacrament of Penance obtain pardon from God’s mercy for the offense committed against him, and are, at the same time, reconciled with the Church which they have wounded by their sins and which by charity, by example, and by prayer labours for their conversion.”

 

It is called the sacrament of conversion because it makes sacramentally present Jesus’ call to conversion, the first step in returning to the Father from whom one has strayed by sin.

 

It is called the sacrament of Penance, since it consecrates the Christian sinner’s personal and ecclesial steps of conversion, penance, and satisfaction.

 

It is called the sacrament of confession, since the disclosure or confession of sins to a priest is an essential element of this sacrament. In a profound sense it is also a “confession” – acknowledgement and praise – of the holiness of God and of his mercy toward sinful man.

 

It is called the sacrament of forgiveness, since by the priest’s sacramental absolution God grants the penitent “pardon and peace.”

 

It is called the sacrament of Reconciliation, because it imparts to the sinner the love of God who reconciles: “Be reconciled to God.” He who lives by God’s merciful love is ready to respond to the Lord’s call: “Go; first be reconciled to your brother.”
