On Thursday 9th February, Year 6 received the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Before receiving the Sacrament, we completed an examination of conscience, reflecting on the Ten Commandments. Year 6 spent time in prayer and added their sorry prayers to the prayer tree before receiving the Sacrament. After they received the Sacrament, they placed their prayer stones in the water to represent washing away their sins. Year 6 received the Sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation next week.
“I feel better saying sorry for my mistakes before receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation and the gifts and the fruits of the Holy Spirit,” HJ
“I was a bit nervous because I had not been to confession for a while but Father Matthew helped me and I remembered all of the Act of Contrition.” JB
