The sacrament of Reconciliation is a sacrament of healing.
The new life of Christ given to us in the gift of baptism can be weakened and even lost through sin. Christ wills that his Church should continue his work of healing and gives us the gift of the Sacrament of Reconciliation in which we celebrate the joy of being forgiven.
It is customary ,for children to be prepared for their First Reconciliation around the age of 8 years old and here at St Lawrence’s it forms part of the preparation programme for a child’s First Communion.
This usually takes place in May each year.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is offered every Saturday between 11.00a.m and 12noon and before the 6.30.p.m Mass and at other times when available.
