Sacraments & Rites
Do you remember your First Holy Communion? You may have been wearing special clothes or remember the taste of the bread and wine. Watching your child receive Holy Communion for the first time is a precious moment and we are excited to accompany you and your child to take this next step in faith.
Reconciliation is another step we take in faith. It provides the opportunity for us to reconnect with God, spend time reflecting on life and to unburden the things that hold us back.
At Our Lady of the Southern Cross, we prepare children to receive the Sacraments of First Holy Communion and Reconciliation at the same time. The preparation is for baptised children from year 4 and upwards and takes place during term 4 of the school year.
To register your child for the Sacrament of First Holy Communion and Reconciliation here are the steps:
If your child has received the Sacrament of First Holy Communion and not yet received the Sacrament of Reconciliation, or if your child is not yet baptised, please contact our parish team by phone (07) 3324 3900 or email [email protected] and we can guide you through the process.
