Catholic Parishes of North Mackay and Farleigh offer a Home-Based Program for children to prepare them for the reception of the Sacraments of Penance (1st Confession), Confirmation and First Eucharist (ie. First Holy Communion).
This program is a process leading to the completion of Christian Initiation of children; a process that is Family Focussed, Parish Based and Parish School Supported.
The children will firstly prepare for Sacrament of Penance over a period of approximately five weeks and receiving this Sacrament at the end of this time. The process will then continue and the children will begin their preparations for the Sacrament of Confirmation and First Eucharist and will celebrate and receive these Sacraments at a time which will be advised.
The program invites parents to guide their children through a series of lessons at home using the resource booklets My Family Prepares, also including Workshops plus a retreat run by Fr James and some members of the Sacramental Team which will help support the Children in their final preparations before receiving the Sacraments.
All parents who wish their child/ren to receive these Sacraments will need to attend the Registration and information session, which is widely advertised in Parish Bulletin, Parish Facebook, Parish Web Site and through Parish Catholic Schools.
For further information regarding the Sacramental Process please contact the Parish Sacramental Co-ordinator Mrs Chris Haines on 4957 4855, Tuesdays to Fridays 9am to 2pm.
