Reconciliation & Eucharist

My Lord and My God
Please see below for general information about our parish programme.  We will hold an information meeting for adults on Tuesday 17th January 2017 - 7.30pm at Cathedral House.  Further details will be in newsletters, parish noticeboard and on pages in the parish blog.


The parish preparation programme for the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist draws on the famous words of St Thomas who said 'My Lord and My God' when he saw the Lord after his resurrection.  This story is found in John's Gospel 20:19-31.

Preparation Programme 
Our parish programme is open to children in year 3 or above.  The programme includes sessions for children and the adults in their family who support them in their faith journey. The programme is designed to support adults (parents, carers, Godparents and others) to assist their child in preparing for this sacrament. Adults need to attend their sessions before their children join the programme.

My Lord and My God is based on six core themes:
God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit
God's Story - The Bible
God's Family - The Church
God's Forgiveness - The Sacrament of Reconciliation
God's Greatest Gift - The Sacrament of the Eucharist
God's Relationship - Our Prayer Life

The programme gives adults and children a chance to:
  • learn more about the Holy Mass;
  • learn about the Sacrament of the Eucharist which is the second sacrament of initiation;
  • learn about the Sacrament of Reconciliation which is known as one of the healing sacraments;
  • find out more about the Bible and the catechism;
  • experience different types of prayer for use within the family.
