Sacrament Program for School Aged Children

Our Sacrament Program continues

This will be a busy year across our parishes and schools as we are completing preparation that was begun in 2020 and we will have many celebrations of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation to make up for those who could not celebrate them in 2020 and for those who will enrol in 2021. 

Those families with children at either Our Lady of Good Counsel Primary School, Deepdene, Our Holy Redeemer Primary School, Surrey Hills or Our Lady’s Wattle Park Primary School will be enrolled at the school level by their teacher and Religious Education Leader.

Reconciliation

First Reconciliation for school-aged children has been celebrated across our parishes for 2021.  Details about the Sacramental Program for 2022 will be available early next year.

First Eucharist

Children preparing to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist for the first time are usually in Year 4. In most instances, these children will have received the Sacrament of Reconciliation in the previous year (Year 3).

First Eucharist has been celebrated for 2021. Details about the Sacramental Program for 2022 will be available early next year.

 

Confirmation

Children preparing to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation are usually in Year 5 or 6 of their primary school education. In most instances, these children will have prepared for and received the Sacrament of Reconciliation in Year 3 and the Sacrament of the Eucharist in Year 4.  These circumstances can vary.

Online registrations are currently open and will close on Monday, 27 September.
