Sacramental Programme for 
First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

When children are in Year 3 they are eligible to make their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion,

The First Reconciliation program is held in Term 1 of the school year and First Holy Communion is generally held during Term 3. The past two years have meant changes but going into 2022 we hope this will happen. 

The children must attend four lessons of preparations for each Sacrament on Sunday mornings.


Sacramental Programme for Confirmation

The Sacrament of Confirmation is usually celebrated by the children in Years 5 or Year 6, after they have received their First Holy Communion, Confirmations are normally held every two years in the even years.  However, due to Covid-19 Confirmation was not held in 2020.

Confirmation was held in, 2021 in an effort to 'catch up' with those who missed being Confirmed in previous years.

We plan to hold Confirmations again in 2022 in our three parishes for those children who will be in
Years 5 and 6 in 2022 and then go back to regular bi-annual Confirmations.

Confirmation in 2022 will be held in St Mary's Cathedral but the preparation lessons will be held here in our parishes.
