Sacramental Programme

Sacramental Programme 


"For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them" Matthew 18:20 


The children’s Sacramental Programme for St. John Bosco Primary children is managed in partnership between the school and the parish.  

The children’s sacramental journey is an integral part of developing their religious education and their understanding of their faith life. 


Over the course of the year, our children will delve deeper into their faith, exploring its personal significance as they take the next steps on their faith journey. The Sacramental programme consists of a series of meetings and celebrations for parents and their children (year 3 or above). This journey includes the Sacrament of Reconciliation, commonly known as First Forgiveness, and the Sacrament of Holy Communion. 


The Catechists on the team link not only school/parish but the two schools (St John Bosco and Mount Carmel) working as one for the good of the Diocese.  The Parish Catechists (of both schools working as one team) have developed the "With You Always Sacramental Programme" which acknowledges, "parents are the first and best teachers" of our faith.  Our children use the booklet during their preparations.
