First Penance 🙏🏾

18 Jun

On Saturday, June 17, five of our children, who had been preparing all year for their First Holy Communion, experienced the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time. All gathered in our chapel with a member of their family. It was a graced moment of experiencing God’s mercy as they prepared their hearts to receive Jesus for the first time in the Holy Eucharist. 

Fr. Samson, the pastor of Sts. James and Philip Cathedral, presided over the service with Alex, their Catechist, assisting.



Reconciliation room…after their first confession, each child received a FORGIVEN bracelet as a remembrance of their first Penance.




After the service, Fr. Samson blest their rosaries, medals, scapular and Bibles.
