We are currently undertaking the process of developing our Parish Based Sacramental Program for 2021.
If you are interested in your child participating in this program we ask you please complete the 2021 Survey below and also sign up for our Program’s mailing list (you will receive a confirmation email on subscription, please check your junk mail for this email). This will enable us to adequately prepare resources and finalise dates for this years calendar.
Please note: If your child attends St Francis of Assisi Regional Primary School the Sacramental Program is run through the school and you will receive information from them directly. You do not need to complete the survey or sign up for the mailing list below.
The Sacramental Programme 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.
We currently operate two streams of our Program:
School Based Program: for the students at St Francis of Assisi Regional Catholic Primary School
Parish Based Program: for all other children in our community.
These programs are based on the same materials and run along side one another with both groups joining together to celebrate the sacraments. In 2019 about two thirds of our participants were in the Parish Program and a third in the School Program.
Completion of the Sacramental Program is in three stages:
First Reconciliation : Year 2 and older
First Holy Communion: Year 3 and older
Confirmation: Year 6 and older
We are currently working on the 2021 Materials. If you would like to participate in this years program we ask you please complete the 2021 Survey above and also join our sacramental mailing list to ensure you receive up to date information as it is released.
