Sacramental Program

There are seven holy Sacraments, three of which are celebrated during a child’s primary school years.

A Sacrament is a special sign of God’s presence. Sacraments are God’s gift to the church and it is through these Sacraments that we fully become members of God’s family.

The Sacramental Program at Sacred Heart Primary School includes the following:

   -  First Reconciliation, Year 3
   -  First Eucharist, Year 3
   -  Confirmation, Year 6

Preparation for the Sacraments of Penance (Reconciliation), Eucharist (First Holy Communion) and Confirmation is a partnership between the school and the family. While preparation for these Sacraments is school based, there is an expectation that parents play an active part in this preparation by attending sacramental information nights, commitment masses and sacramental workshops.

When preparing for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, the starting point is exploring the child’s own relationships. The children reflect on their own family and friendship experiences, the happy and the hurtful times. We explore the rituals of making up or ‘reconciliation’ and the ways of making peace again when things go wrong.

Eucharist is a Christian community celebration and one of the three Sacraments of Initiation. Students celebrate their First Eucharist when they are in Grade 3 during a school-based Mass held on a Sunday afternoon. It is a special event for families and an ongoing Sacrament celebrated with our Parish and school family at Mass.
