Sacraments are an integral part of our Catholic life and identity. Baptism through the Holy Spirit brings us into the family of God through Christ. Confirmation confirms and strengthens our faith, while the Holy Eucharist and the Sacrament of Penance continually heals, sustains and nourishes us to live out our daily lives.

Each year we invite all children who are already baptised and are in Grade 3 or above, to join our Parish Sacramental Preparation Programme.

In keeping with the Sacramental Policy of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, the children are formed for Confirmation when they are in Grade 3 or reach 8 years of age. The following year they will receive their First Holy Communion which is then followed by the Sacrament of Penance when they are in Grade 5 or 10 years of age.

Our Programme is Parish Family based. Therefore, the children are expected to attend lessons every Sunday in preparations towards receiving their Sacraments. We strongly encourage our parents to be proactive participants in their child/children’s faith formation so the children will fully understand the significance of these life giving Sacraments.

Registration of these Sacraments will be available at the time of preparation.

Children's Liturgy of the Word

The Sacraments of Initiation and Healing is the heart of our Christian life, so it is essential to prepare the children well for these Sacraments, which will nourish them for the rest of their lives.

To learn more and explore the mystery of these Sacraments children from preschool and primary age are invited to break open the liturgy after the penitential act and return in the time of offertory during the school terms at the Church of Twelve Apostles Church Hall, Jindalee.

Children’s Liturgy/Ministry has one purpose; to instil love for God and His Church in our children’s hearts, our parish and beyond.

Registration at this link is required should you wish for your child to attend.
