There are several times Mass times for flexibility and spiritual purposes. See here for Mass times.
Parish-based Sacramental Program
All classes throughout the school undertake sacramental units as part of their Religious Education Program. This supports the Parish based program, but for children to receive the sacraments, they must be formally enrolled by the Parish and take part, with one or both parents, in cluster groups. These groups meet at private homes or at a venue named by the group facilitator and the parents work through a program with their children in these sessions.
Information evenings are organised for each of the sacraments and support is provided throughout the process.
Most of the children who will participate in the program will be in either Year 2 or Year 3, however, all students who ae baptised Catholics are welcome to join the program. Year 2 will be prepared to receive the sacrament of Confirmation, and Year 3 will be prepared to receive the sacraments of Penance and First Holy Communion.
It is at the parents’ discretion, however, as to when their children are ready to receive the sacraments. Parents who were unable to attend the Information / Registration sessions may enrol their children for the following year.
