Sacrament Preparation Programme

Completion of their Initiation into the Catholic Church: When the children are in year 3 at school the Parish sends out a letter, usually in July / August inviting them to attend an initial meeting for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist.

The programme for the preparation is explained at this meeting and families are given an enrolment form.  Once they have enrolled a member of the Sacrament Preparation Team interviews each family then preparation can begin.

Reconciliation is usually celebrated in November of the enrolment year and then Confirmation and Eucharist usually in May / June of the following year.
