1st Reconciliation  & 1st COMMUNION

  • The Sacrament of Reconciliation is an encounter with the mercy of God. It is a recognition that one has failed in their relationship with God and the Church. It is the very essence of the reason that Christ came and died for us.
    The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Church’s life. It is an encounter with the risen Lord who gave the Church the gift of His very body and blood for our journey.
