Sians First Reconciliation.

Sian has chosen to do her First Holy Communion this year with many of her class mates in St Josephs. Tonight she had the first of the sacraments - Reconciliation.

It was a really lovely ceremony, relaxed and positive. The kids wore their normal casual clothes. Sian said a prayer at the alter and then made her first confession in a chair in the open. When she was finished the priest gave her a small candle and I helped her to put it in a dish of sand at the foot of the alter.

She really seemed to enjoy herself and we came home afterwards and had a lovely evening with Anne and Kel. We had a homemade passionfruit cake that Sian had helped make earlier and lots of cups of tea and coffee before she couldn't fight sleep any longer. She fell into bed a short while ago and was asleep before her head hit the pillow!
