Sacramental Program

The sacramental program is parish based with the Parish Sacramental Program Coordinator overseeing the program. This usually involves the development of a timetable for all three sacraments: Reconciliation (Year 2); First Eucharist (Year 3) and Confirmation (Year 6). The coordinator organises parent/student discussion evenings. These evenings are designed to improve communication between parent and child regarding the understanding and reception of each sacrament. Discussions are held in small groups in various homes and the whole group meets together during the course of the program. One of the main purposes of the program is to give parents greater responsibility in the critical stages of their children’s faith development.
