unanderrasquare274Sacramental Programs are parish based.  At Immaculate Conception Parish Church, any child in Year 3 or above at a Catholic or State School and who has been baptised, has the right to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.  

Any child in Year 6 or above may receive the Sacrament of Confirmation providing the candidate has met the criteria. In accordance with the teaching of the Catholic Church, however, before a child can exercise this right, it is the responsibility of the priest, parents and teachers/catechists to see that he/she is adequately prepared to receive these Sacraments.  Also, since parents are the ‘first educators in faith’ of their child, adequate provision must be made for parents to participate in the preparation of their children for the reception of these Sacraments.
