Sacramental Programs 

 

Revised Sacrament Program 2021/2022 

Dear Parents and Carers, unfortunately, our Sacramental Program will be suspended for the remainder of 2021.  Specific dates for the 2022 Program will be finalised shortly; however the proposed program for next year is as follows:

  • Reconciliation 2021 Catchup: Term 1, 2022

  • Confirmation 2021 Catchup & Confirmation 2022:  Term 2, 2022.  Our parish will combine the preparation for both groups from 2021 and 2022.  It is with great pleasure I advise, Bishop Anthony Fisher has announced that our region will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation at the Cathedral in June 2022.

  • First Holy Communion 2022: Term 3, 2022

  • Reconciliation 2022: Term 4, 2022

 

The Parish is also looking for parishioner(s) who are interested in running our Sacramental Program from 2023 onwards.  If you have any questions about the program or getting involved in this very special and rewarding ministry, please reach out to our current coordinator Sandra Green at sandragreen@optusnet.com.au.  Training will be provided.
