The First Reconciliation and Reconciliation preparation will be beginning at the end of February. Our first meetings will take place via Zoom, and those families who have registered for this year’s programme will receive their invitation via e-mail nearer to the day.
As the restrictions on groups meeting are eased, we hope that lessons can start face-to-face, possibly in April or May.
The current plan is for the children to receive the Sacraments for the first time in October, this will naturally be subject to review, depending on the Covid situation.
Because of the present situation, families have a great opportunity to be actively involved in preparing their children to receive the Sacraments. Parents are the first teachers, and your practice of our faith is the best example they can have. Our sessions will help us all along our journey together, because we should never stop learning!
Please be aware, that in line with best practice, a parent needs to be with the child for the Zoom sessions.
