Sacramental Program

The Sacramental Program for children generally starts at the beginning of the school year and is completed in August/September of that year. Registration is open from December until February.

The Sacramental Program prepares children to celebrate the following sacraments:

  • Reconciliation
  • Confirmation
  • First Holy Communion

For Sacramental Program enquiries please contact Orla Wright, Pastoral Associate Glenelg Parish (Phone 08 8294 1888) or Karla Sparapani, APRIM

How will I know if my child is ready to celebrate the Sacraments?

The first and most important factor is that the child has a genuine desire to know more about and to participate more fully in the relationship with God and God's church community. Official pre-requisites are that the child has been baptised in the Catholic Church and must be 7 years of age or older.

If your child was baptised was baptised in another denomination or if your child has not been baptised and you wish to enrol with us, please make an appointment to talk with us.
