Preparing for Our First Confession.

When we were preparing for our 1st Confession,

we took a look at the confession boxes in our church.


We heard that long ago our grandparents and some of our parents

would have been to confession in the confession box.


We saw where the priest would sit.

Then we went back in time and went into the confession box.

We liked it. It was quiet and peaceful in there.

Teacher told us about the story of

‘The First Confession’ by Frank O’Connor,

where the little boy in the story knelt up

on the arm rest in the box at his First Confession.


“It must have been then that I noticed the shelf

at about one height with my head.

It was really a place for grown-up people to rest their elbows,

but in my distracted state I thought it was probably

the place you were supposed to kneel.”


This made us laugh.

We thought that was a funny thing to do!

  1. Congratulations to all in Room Six on making your First Confession, and thank you Ms Beausang for all you did. It was a lovely ceremony and all that work paid off – everybody did their part beautifully, and we were all very proud.

    And… Good luck tomorrow. We have our fingers crossed.

  2. Thank you Norma and Liam,

    I was very proud of all the boys and girls in Room Six on Saturday.
    You are right, they all played their parts very well.
    Tomorrow should be fun.
    I’m just sorry, I can’t bring the whole class.
    But I’m sure they’ll have an enjoyable day
    visiting the other classes.
