If your child is baptised, and you believe that you and your child are ready to prepare for, and participate in their celebration of the Sacraments of Reconciliation or Confirmation this year, then you are invited to enrol in this process.

Details about First Communion will be finalised and shared later in the year, based on the COVID requirements at that time.

Key details about preparing for the sacraments

As group gatherings are not feasible at this time, parents and children are asked to prepare for the sacraments together at home. The parish will provide and distribute video and print resources to support you in your preparation.

Key dates for Confirmation

Confirmation will be celebrated at three Masses:

  • Saturday 29 May, 4:00 pm
  • Saturday 5 June, at the usual 6:00 pm Mass
  • Saturday 12 June, 4:00 pm

Key dates for First Reconciliation

First Reconciliation will be celebrated at liturgies on Tuesday 22, Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 June at 7:00 pm. Parents whose children attend our parish primary school may wish to keep in mind that there will also be parent-teacher interviews on the night of Tuesday 22 June.
