    ACT OF CONTRITION
    Oh my God,
    I thank you for loving me.
    I am sorry for all my sins;
    for not loving others and
    for not loving you.
    Help me to live like Jesus
    and not to sin again.
    Amen.

    OR
    Jesus Christ,
    Son of the living God,
    Have mercy on me, a sinner.

    OR
    Dear God,
    I am sorry for doing wrong. Please forgive me all my sins. I know you love me very much. Help me to love you in return and care for others as you do.
    Amen.

    LORD'S PRAYER
    Our Father, who are in heaven, hallowed be thy name
    Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven
    Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses,
    As we forgive those who trespass against us.
    And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
    Amen.

    HAIL MARY
    Hail Mary, full of grace
    The Lord is with thee.
    Blessed are you
    among women,
    And blessed is the fruit
    of your womb, Jesus.
    Holy Mary, Mother of God
    Pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.
    Amen.

    PRAYER OF PRAISE
    Glory to the Father
    and to the Son,
    and to the Holy Spirit;
    As it was in the beginning,
    is now and will be forever.
    Amen.

     

  • Along with the First Reconciliation workbook that you receive at the parent meeting, these videos are an excellent addition to your preparation for First Reconciliation. There are 6 lessons and within each lesson there are 7 short videos to watch. You can also print off a worksheet for each lesson for you to complete. You can view these on your own time to help you better prepare and understand what the Sacrament of Reconciliation is and why we as Catholics return regularly to receive God's mercy in this special way.
