1st Reconciliation at Holy Spirit Church

On Wednesday 7th February 70 young people, along with their families gathered at Holy Spirit Church in West Bridgford to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the very first time.

Having prepared with their catechists they were able to spend some time on the evening reflecting on the Parable of the Prodigal Son and thinking about what they might what to share with God during the Sacrament.

Throughout the evening families sang and prayed for those who were experiencing Reconciliation for the first time and everyone was then able to go and celebrate that forgiveness by a lighting a candle and enjoying some post-Reconciliation treats!

A big thank you to the Catechists for their hard work, to the singers and musicians for their wonderful music and to the clergy who came from near and far to enable our young people to experience God’s love and mercy through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
