The Sacramental Programme for our community is run through St Francis of Assisi, Paddington. Through our Sacramental Programme baptised children in our community complete their journey into full membership of the Catholic Church. The programme strives to help our children grow into this community, and feel a real sense of belonging to the wider Family of God.

Completion of the Sacramental Programme is in three stages:

First Reconciliation : Year 2 and older
First Holy Communion: Year 3 and older
Confirmation: Year 6 and older

The programme runs in parallel with the Religious Education syllabus at St Francis of Assisi Regional School however we welcome all children who have a connection to our community and half of the participants in our Sacramental Programmes come from outside of the regional primary school. Our programme focuses on the importance of parents and caregivers as the most important Catholic in your Children’s lives. We partner with you to provide materials and support so that you can guide your children through the preparation material in each stage of the programme.

For information on each stage of the programme, including eligibility for enrollment, application forms and important dates please refer to the sections on each sacrament on this site. We have also provided for your convenience a printable document that includes information regarding the 2019 programme. If you would like to discuss these details please email Ruth at the Parish Office on administration@stfrancis-stjoseph.com or call on 02 9331 4043.
