In the Diocese of Leeds, the Sacraments of Initiation are celebrated for children during their years of primary education:

  • Reconciliation in Year 3 (ages 7 and 8)
  • Holy Communion in Year 4 (ages 8 and 9)
  • Confirmation in the first part of Year 6 (ages 10 and 11)

The Diocese has recently produced a new Confirmation resource (Empowered by the Spirit: The Gift of Confirmation), and we working on diocesan resources for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
