We are grateful to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation with our Year 3 sacramental students in the final weeks of Term 3. In Baptism, these young children began a life-long journey and a way of life. In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, our focus turns to God’s mercy, how we forgive among our family, friends, and community, and how to celebrate forgiveness. Fr Hosking reminded us that while the regularity of the sacrament of reconciliation has diminished, the need to find redemption and to earnestly discover our best natures are such important pursuits. Personal and communal forgiveness can be a struggle for individuals, families, and groups. The journey to recognising I have done wrong, saying I am sorry, asking forgiveness, repairing harm, and restoring relationships are so important to our shared humanity. We congratulate our Year 3 students for continuing their desire to deepen their faith and connection with God.

“Our only desire and our one choice should be this: I want, and I choose what better leads to God deepening his life in me.” St. Ignatius of Loyola
