First Holy Communion and Confirmation

St John’s Wood/The Gap Parish Sacramental Program – Confirmation and First Holy Communion

 Confirmation

In the year when the children turn 8 (Year Three), they are sealed with the gift of

the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Confirmation administered by the Bishop or his

delegate.

 

Penance (Reconciliation Rite II) & First Holy Communion

In the year when the children turn 9 (Year Four), they are welcomed to the Lord’s

Christian initiation. They will also take part in a simple celebration of the second rite of the Sacrament of Penance.
