At Mother of Mercy Parish, Reconciliation/Confession is held on Saturdays at 4pm at St. Cecilia’s Church, Hamilton. You can also arrange another time for Confession by calling the Parish Office on 3268 3040 to make an appointment or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Sacrament of Penance is one of two sacraments of healing (the other being the Anointing of the Sick). Penance is a sacrament of forgiveness and celebrates God’s love and mercy towards us. It is about acknowledging and naming those times when we know we have done wrong, and then making peace and restoring the relationships with those who have been affected by our poor choices.
In the year that children turn ten (Year 5), they are eligible to receive the Sacrament of Penance if they have received the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist). Please see our Sacramental Program for more information. Please email the Sacramental Coordinator at email@example.com with any further queries.
