Sacramental Programme 2020

Sacramental Programme 2020

In the best interest for the health of all, we have made the sad decision to postpone all Sacraments until next year. After our discussion, it was felt that our Sacraments need to be celebrated in a meaningful and reflective manner, rather than rushing the faith formation of our students.

We are aware that the current COVID-19 restrictions mean that we can not have full family participation, which is an important aspect of any Sacramental celebration.

The proposed plan for next year will be:

  • · First Reconciliation in Term 1 – Yr 2 & 3
  • · Sacrament of Confirmation in Term 2 for Yr 6, 2021 & any 2020 Yr 6 students (Yr 7 2021)
  • · Sacrament of Eucharist Term 3 – Yr 3 & 4.

We are aware that for some people this will be received positively but we also acknowledge that there will be some disappointment. However, we are living in unprecedented times with daily changes to our lives. Our priority is the health and wellbeing of all community members and ensuring everyone’s safety. Thank you for your support and understanding in these challenging times.

We look forward to a joyful and prayer celebration with all family members in 2021.
