Sacramental Programs

Confirmation

Through participation in Sacramental programs at St Michael's, we aim for children to develop a better sense of understanding of the importance of, and respect for, their relationship with the Church.

Children receive three Sacraments during their primary years: 

  • Sacrament of Reconciliation in Year 2
  • Sacrament of Eucharist in Year 3
  • Sacrament of Confirmation in Year 6

The parish and school support the family in helping their child receive the gifts of the Sacraments, through formal classroom lessons and the parish Sacramental program. However, the prime responsibility for the children's preparation lies with the example and Catholic practice of the family.

Supported by their parents, friends and the parish community, we hope that in receiving these sacraments for the first time, the children will continue to build their relationship with God through participation in weekly Sunday Mass.
