The Sacrament of Penance:

The Sacrament of Penance is received by children in year 3 or older.

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 Penance. A faith formation evening for parents will also be held and it is expected that at least one parent attends.

The preparation program is held on Mondays (Monday School) from 4-5pm in the Parish Church during Term 3 with the Sacrament usually held on a week night in September.

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 Term 2.

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