If your child has received the Sacrament of Baptism in the Catholic Church and you intend
for your child to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in Year 6, the Sacraments of Reconciliation
and Holy Communion need to be received prior to Confirmation.

If your child has already received First Communion, but not received Reconciliation, OR if your
child has not yet received either Reconciliation or Communion, there is an opportunity for
your child to participate in some preparation classes and then receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation during next term – Term 4, 2018.

When this course has been completed and Reconciliation received, there will also be opportunity
to receive Holy Communion next year in 2019, if desired.

Please note, both the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion need to be received before your child can be eligible for Confirmation.

With the support of the school leadership and classroom teachers, your child will be required
to attend four preparation classes during school time on the following dates and times:

  • Wednesday 7th November – 12 - 1pm
  • Wednesday 14th November – 2:15 - 3:15pm
  • Wednesday 21st November – 12 - 1pm
  • Wednesday 28th November – 12 - 1pm



Year 2 - Getting to know Jesus Family Night

  • 8th November6:30pm - 8:30pm
  • As the first step in your child’s preparation for the reception of the Sacraments

    and Confirmation (usually Year 6)
