First Communion and Reconciliation

FIRST COMMUNION(EUCHARIST)
AND FIRST RECONCILIATION (CONFESSION/PENANCE)

The sacraments of Reconciliation and First Communion are two very important events in a child’s spiritual life.
Reconciliation heals our spiritual wounds and restores God’s grace.
Communion is the most central and important of all the sacraments, because of our belief that the consecrated bread and wine are truly the consecrated body and blood, soul and divinity of Christ.
