The Sacrament of First Eucharist

The Sacrament of Penance is a pre-requisite for First Eucharist.

The Parish recognises parents as the first educators of their children in faith and aims to support them with a program to help children understand and prepare for the reception of the Sacrament of Eucharist. A faith formation evening for parents will also be held and it is expected that at least one parent attends.

The program is available to children in year 4 or above. The preparation program is held on Mondays from 4-5pm in the Parish Church during Term 1. The Sacrament of Eucharist is usually celebrated on a weekend in early May.

The children are required to be presented to the Parish community at one mass held over
two weekends.

An enrolment form and a letter detailing the program will be forwarded to interested
families via email, with a fee payable on enrolment. Enrolments will be closed by the end of
November in the year prior to the program.

Children are required to wear a white stole similar to their baptism stole for the Sacraments.
Please see separate information on stoles.
