Sacrament Preparation Ministry

Sacrament Preparation Ministry

 The Sacrament Program runs from February through to September / October and welcomes and supports children in our Parish (from Year 2 and above) who are seeking the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Holy Communion.

Parents are invited to enroll at the information sessions offered. The Parish supports this program with special children’s liturgy sessions and parent education run over several weeks. Children are organized into small groups to be taught by our many liturgy teachers. Parents also work individually with their children at home by completing a booklet towards preparation of the Sacraments.

Much preparation and planning is involved for:

  •           Children making a parent-supported Reconciliation prior to receiving the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion.
  •           Archbishop / Bishops officiate at the Sacrament of Confirmation ceremony where all candidates and sponsors attend (the date varies from year to year).
  •            Sacramental Masses held over two weekends of Parish Masses, where children receive the Sacrament of First Holy Communion.
  •           The children and their families being invited to a Welcome Back Mass and Special Morning Tea held several weeks later.

We would love to hear from anyone interested in assisting in this Ministry.
