First Confession in Steelton Parish

Steelton, PA - During the 2012 season of Great Lent, students in the second grade class of St. Nicholas Serbian Orthodox Church, Steelton, PA prepared for their First Holy Confession.

Under the guidance of their Church School teacher, Andrea Gunther, the students focused on the Sacrament of  Holy Confession  and learned the effects of wrong-doing while constantly being reminded of God’s ever forgiving love.

A special vesper service was scheduled on the Eve of St. Lazarus and the children listened as our spiritual leader Very Reverend Stavrofor Srboljub Jockovich discussed the importance of repentance through the parables of Zacchaeus the Tax Collector, the Publican and the Pharisee and the Prodigal Son.  Afterward, each child received their individual First Holy Confession and a blessed icon of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to commemorate this meaningful event.
