SUNDAY SCHOOL

St Christopher’s Sunday School runs a year-long faith-formation Curriculum for students in Years 3 to 8, including preparing the children for the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation. Sunday School runs from 9.30 to 10.25 am every Sunday during school term, with holidays coinciding with the Victorian State School holidays.

At Sunday School, children will be prepared to receive the Sacraments in the following order:
  • First Reconciliation in Year 3
  • First Eucharist in Year 4 
  • Confirmation in Year 6 or older

The Sacraments will next be celebrated as follows:
First Eucharist in June 2016
First Reconciliation in October 2016
Confirmation in August 2017



Learning about our faith is a life-long commitment and participation in our faith community is an essential part of being Catholic.

Sunday School is not just about preparing for and completing the sacraments. The Sunday School Team strives to build a partnership between families and the church. An important aspect is the gathering of children in their peer faith community where friendships develop and the children grow together in faith as they COME TO KNOW JESUS BETTER. Attendance is therefore expected throughout the year. 

All students in Year 7 to 10 are invited to join our Sunday School Secondary School programme. We especially encourage students who do not attend Catholic schools to spend an hour with us on Sundays from 9.30 am to 10.25 am. The programme is run by adult teachers using the workbook titled CHRIST OUR LIGHT AND LIFE as well as an online DVD programme DECISION POINT. You are welcome to come along any time.
