FIRST SACRAMENTS OF RECONCILIATION AND COMMUNION 2018 onwards
The Diocese of Leeds has made alterations to its traditional way of preparing children and young people for the first sacraments. Chidlren in Yr 3 and above who wish to make their First Holy Communion will prepare fo the Sacrament of Reconiciliation (confession) in 2018 and receive this sacrament during Lent 2018. The following year (2019) they will prepare for their First Holy Communion.
This year's candidates have made their 1st Reconciliation and will start preparing for their 1st Communion in 2019..
Children currently in Year 2 will hear details of their 1st Reconciliation in the next academic year (when they are in Year 3)
