The Sacramental Program, is designed to prepare children who do not attend St Joan of Arc or St James parish schools, for the sacraments of First Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation.
They are held in St Joan of Arc Presbytery, afterschool during the school term.
This wonderful sacrament is at the heart of our faith. It is when we receive the Body and Blood of Christ. The word Eucharist is from a Greek word meaning thanksgiving.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation is the sacrament of peace and healing. Through Reconciliation we are assured of God’s love for us and forgiveness.
Confirmation is the third Sacrament of Initiation. At this time, the students are asked to renew the promises made on their behalf at Baptism.
This Sacrament establishes them as fully fledged members of the Catholic faith. Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives these young students increased ability to practice their faith and witness to Christ in every situation.
Confirmation classes are for children in Year 6 or above.
