What we believe about Confession (Reconciliation)

We believe that through the Sacrament of Reconciliation God forgives our sins. In confession, we have the opportunity to repent and recover the grace of friendship with God.

It is a holy moment in which we place ourselves in his presence and honestly acknowledge our sins and are reconciled to God and His Church. The Sacrament helps us stay close to the truth that we cannot live without God. "In him we live and move and have our being" (Acts 17:28).

When can I access confession at the cathedral?

Saturday | After 10am Mass and from 5.00pm - 5.20pm. 

Our priests are also available to offer confession during the week. If you would like to request a confession at another time, simply talk to a priest or get in touch.

First Confessions

Children in the parish are prepared in primary 3 in our parish primary schools to make their First Confession. This usually takes place during the season of Lent.
