First Reconciliation Program

First Reconciliation 23rd March 2022 at 7pm

Children currently attending St Joseph’s school do NOT need to register.

Other children should contact the Parish Pastoral Manager (see below)

Dear Families,     


Your child is welcome to receive the Sacrament of Penance (Reconciliation) this year, and it is important that you feel very much part of the preparation program, so that you can share in this special time with your child.


We invite you to join us at the following occasion to be part of the preparation for this special experience in your child’s faith development.

Children Praying

Baptismal Certificate

A copy of your child’s Baptismal Certificate will need to be sighted by me (and a copy taken) before classes commence.   N.B. I won’t need a baptismal certificate if your child was baptised at the Hawthorn Parish, but please indicate this on the form.

The Hawthorn Parish promotes the safety and well-being of children.

Our policies and procedures can be found on our website at


COVID safety procedures are mandatory at all Parish events.


If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

Thank you.
