Sacrament Preparation Ministry


Sacrament Preparation Ministry

  • In the year children turn 8 (Grade 3), they may receive the Sacrament of Confirmation
  • In the year children turn 9 (Grade 4), they make First Communion and, as part of their preparation for this, celebrate their First Reconciliation in the second rite.
  • In the year children turn 10 (Grade 5), they celebrate the Sacrament of Penance with individual confession and absolution in the first rite.

 The Sacramental Program welcomes and supports children in our Parish (from Year 3 and above) who are seeking the Sacraments of  Confirmation, First Holy Communion and Reconciliation.

Parents are invited to enrol at the information sessions offered. The Children are given a workbook to work through with their parents and this is further supplemented with special children’s liturgy sessions run by the Sacramental team and held during weekend Mass time in the weeks leading up to celebrating the Sacrament.

The Sacramental Team are a Parish support group actively involved in  the preparation of the children in each of the Sacraments. This involves facilitating workshops and attendance at the each of the ceremonies.
