Parish Sacramental Programme

Many students at Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Primary School receive the Sacraments of First Communion, Confirmation and Penance through the Parish Sacramental Programme. The parish can be contacted by phoning 3715 8517.

In alignment with the Sacramental Policy of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, in the year when children turn eight (Year Three), they are sealed with the gift of the Holy Spirit in the Sacrament of Confirmation administered by the Bishop or his delegate.

In the year when children turn nine (Year Four), they are welcomed to the Lord's Table and receive Holy Communion for the first time. This is the climax of their Christian initiation. A simple celebration (second rite) of the Sacrament of Penance is included as part of the preparation for First Communion.

In the year when the children turn ten (Year Five), they are prepared to celebrate more fully the Sacrament of Penance with individual confession and absolution.
