The grade three students all did their first reconcilliation last week. Jack was welcomed into the Catholic church by Father Loi after initially being baptised Anglican.
There was 4 weeks of preparation at home and lots of practice at school the week leading up to reconciliation. Jack came to understand the true meaning of 'sorry.' Everyone makes mistakes after all.
The flowers slowly opened as they were put in the water to symbolise a garden of forgiveness.
We celebrated with Strawberry Sundaes for dessert!
