This term we have been undertaking an inquiry into reconciliation and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. At the start of our inquiry we had many wonderings and these have guided our learning. We have made discoveries about the steps of reconciliation, the key objects, symbols, signs and actions of the Sacrament of Penance and what happens at the rite of Penance. We have spent a lot of time talking about the types of CHOICES we sometimes make that hurt our relationships (sins).
When preparing to talk with Fr Steven for the rite of Penance, each person needs to reflect on these choices and be ready to talk about them.
We have sent a booklet home for your family to work on this week. Spending time together talking ‘from this Sacrament‘ and about this Sacrament is really important. It will help ensure we feel less nervous and well prepared.
