Jesus came that we might be saved. He brought healing to us – both physical healing in many miracles and, more importantly, spiritual healing. He saves us from sin. We have been reconciled to God in Christ. This spiritual healing is given to us today through Christ’s Church in what is known as the Rite of Reconciliation.
The Sacrament of First Reconciliation
The Sacrament of First Reconciliation (Penance / Confession) is celebrated at St Catherine’s by children in Year 3 or above who have been baptised. It is the practice of the Church that children be prepared for this Sacrament before receiving their First Eucharist (Holy Communion).
