Reconciliation and 1st Communion

1st Communion click here

5th of May was Katryna's Reconciliation.

The Sacrament of Penance and Reconciliation (commonly called ConfessionReconciliation, or Penance) is one of seven sacraments of the Catholic Church , in which the faithful obtain divine mercy for the sins committed against God and neighbour and are reconciled with the community of the Church. By this sacrament Christians are freed from sins committed after Baptism. The sacrament of Penance is considered the normal way to be absolved from mortal sins which would otherwise condemn a person to Hell. As biblical basis for this sacrament, the Catholic Church refers to James 5:16, "confess your sins to one another" and to Jesus' breathing the Holy Spirit to the Apostles, saying, "Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained." (John 20:23)



1st Communion Sunday

The day started out with Mass in CFB Kingston. We met Father Daniel. This would be the priest who would baptise Jonah.

Then we are getting ready for the 1st Communion...Mother and Daughter

Crowding in at the Holy Name Church

During mass, all children got to say something. This is what Katryna had to say

A ring that we got engraved with the letter "K". She got the ring for her baptism...we forget who gave it to her.
