The Holy Eucharist

The Source & Summit of Our Christian Faith

We have reviewed the Sacramental program at Sacred Heart for 2024. Children in the school will make their preparation through the school, ahead of making their first Holy Communion (First Eucharist) on the weekend of August 24/25 (Term 3). To complete their preparation, there will be a reflection day at the school closer to this date. More details will come through the school as we approach Term 3.

Any children outside the school who wish to make their first Holy Communion (First Eucharist) are invited to contact the parish office or talk to the parish priest to book a place in the Saturday afternoon preparation program for 2024. Typically this Sacrament is received in grade 4, but older children or teenagers are most welcome. The parish will provide four Saturday sessions from 4pm to 5:15pm leading up to receiving the holy Eucharist for the first time at Mass on Saturday August 24 (6pm Vigil Mass) and Sunday August 25 (9:30am morning Mass). The Saturday afternoon sessions will be July 27, August 3, 10 and 17. All four of these Saturday sessions are required to make this Sacrament, and the cost of the program is $200.00 per child. Children outside the school are also welcome to participate in the Sacred Heart school reflection day on Friday the 16th of August (details TBC). Please also note that this Sacrament cannot be received in the same year as your child will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation unless under special circumstances. If you have any questions please contact the parish office and register your interest for 2024.
