Registration is needed to participate in the sacramental programs, and full participation in all aspects of the program is required for reception of the sacrament.
The Schedule of the Program is announced at the beginning of each year, and published here. All dates for the sacraments are also printed in the church bulletins.
There are separate programs for First Reconciliation, First Communion and Confirmation.
All programs are designed to enhance parental involvement in the preparation of their children for the Sacrament. The programs rely on the faith commitment of the parents to prepare the children for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation. The parish acknowledges that parents are the primary teachers of their children in matters of faith. Thus the Sacraments are all parish-based. This is where our parish community, together with parents of the children enrolling in the sacrament, helps to organise and run the program. We find that these parish-based programs involve “the family” a great deal more and, together with their children, mothers, fathers and guardians can renew and revitalise their own “faith journey.”
