Sacramental Programme 2018 - 2019

WB 4.3.19

This week, those who are enrolled onto the sacramental programme met with Mr Stenton and Miss Loftus to discuss the sacrament of ‘reconciliation’.  It was a great day to discuss it, as it was the very first day of Lent.

 

We discussed what would happen during our first confession and read the words we would say to Father David.

 

Firstly we will take a stone (which represents the weight of our sin), and go to Fathr David, who will be sat on the alter.

 

Starting with the sign of the cross

 

Bless me Father, for I have sinned. This is my first confession and these are my sins.

 

We will tell the priest about something for which we are truly sorry, and he will ask if we are sorry for our actions. Once we agree, Father David will give us a penance. We will then say the act of contrition (sometimes called the act of sorrow).

 

O my God, because you are so good, I am very sorry that I have sinned against you, and by the help of your grace, I will not sin again. Amen.

 

Father David will now absolve us of our sins and before we leave the alter, we will drop the stone into a basket which represents our sins being forgiven by God.

 

We will be meeting again on the 8th May ahead of our reconciliation on the 12th at 2.30pm.

 

Thank you to all those who attended Sunday’s presentation 3.2.19! It was lovely to see so many family members! We are really looking forward to the next few meetings ahead of making our next two sacraments.

Parents and carers,

 

If you wish your child to be enrolled on the Sacramental Programme, please complete, and return, the slip given by the Year 3 teachers. The form is also attached below, if you wish to print it.

 

Throughout the year, there will be meetings about the Sacraments and all that they entail. It is essential that you come to all of them with your child to ensure that you all understand the commitments that you and your child are making as they take the next step in their faith journey. Adults will be invited to the Parish Hall with Father David, and Year 3 children will be in 3C with Mr Stenton or Miss Loftus. A creche will be provided in 3L.
