First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

NB: Congratulations to all the candidates who will be making their First Reconciliation this week. We wish you well on the next stage of your faith journey. Preparation Lessons for the First Holy Communion Program will begin next week, Wed, Aug 19. For more info contact the parish office by email: parish@stkevinseastwood, Thank you.


Candidates should be in Year 3 or above and have been baptised. Reconciliation candidates are required to show proof of Baptism by providing a copy of their Baptism Certificate (unless they were baptised at St Kevin’s, Eastwood).

Each Sacrament has an Information Evening for the parents of the candidates, which is held in St Kevin’s Church. Enrolments are done online via a link that will be made available after the information evening. The candidates are also presented to the Parish at one of our weekend Masses, where they will be blessed by our community and hand in a photo form.

Candidates attend 4 x 60 minute group lessons with our Sacramental Coordinator in the Parish Office Meeting Room after school as part of their preparation.

Candidates are presented with a Certificate for each Sacrament they receive.
