     The Sacraments of First Reconciliation &                       First Holy Communion

The sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion are traditionally celebrated in Grade 2. The Catholic Church believes that by the age of 7 most children are capable of understanding the importance of reconciliation with God and are ready to receive the Eucharist.

FIRST RECONCILIATION & FIRST COMMUNION - SY2023-2024
