Sacramental Program for Children

Every year our parish offers sacramental catechesis programs for Catholic children who do not attend a Catholic school. We offer three programs annually, corresponding to the three sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation. One sacramental program commences each term, and each program runs for approximately eight weeks. We have trained Catechists who present the classes. We strongly encourage parents to enrol in these classes with their children.
 
The sacramental programs offered at St Francis Xavier & St Clare Parish for 2018 are as follows:
 
Term 1: The Sacrament of Confirmation (Ages 12 and older)
Term 2: The Sacrament of Reconciliation (Ages 8 and older)
Term 3: The Sacrament of First Eucharist (Ages 9 and older)
 
 

Applying for our Sacramental Programs 

The application process for our sacramental programs is now conducted online. You can find the fillable PDF application form for each sacramental program in the relevant section below. Application forms with relevant sacramental certificates should be emailed to the Parish Office before the commencement of the program.

The cost associated with each program is $80 per child and enables us to provide catechists and resources.
