SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM 2020
Sacramental Programme for
First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
Due to the Covid Crisis we had to postpone the parish Sacramental Program.
The final two classes for First Reconciliation will take place on Sundays, 9 and 16 August. The children will then make their First Reconciliation in small groups.
First Holy Communion will be held in Term 4.
Confirmation however, will not be held this year. Those children who are currently in Year 6 will be invited to attend the program next year when we are advised of dates by the Archbishop.
Children in Year 3 prepare for their First Reconciliation during Term 1.
First Holy Communion follows the receipt of the Sacrament of Reconciliation usually in Term 3.
The Sacramental Programme commences with a Parent Information Night, followed by a Commitment Mass on the weekend. The children attend four Lessons of Preparations for First Reconciliation and four Lessons for First Holy Communion, respectively. Following the First Holy Communion Masses, a Thanksgiving Mass may be celebrated depending on the numbers for First Holy Communion.
Enrolment forms for the Sacramental Programme are available at the Parent Information Night.
Sacramental Programme for Confirmation
The Sacrament of Confirmation is celebrated by the children, usually in Years 5 or Year 6, after they have received their First Holy Communion, Confirmations are held every two years in the even years. We will celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation when new dates are given to us by the Cathedral, hopefully in 2021.
Following a Parent Information Night during the week and a Commitment Mass on the weekend, the children will attend four Lessons of Preparations for Confirmation on Sunday mornings.
