Children's Sacramental Preparation Program

At Our Lady of Dolours, which is part of the Diocese of Broken Bay, the order of the Sacraments of Initiation for children after Baptism, begins with Confirmation then First Reconciliation before receiving First Holy Communion to complete their initiation into the Church.

Therefore, the Children’s Sacramental Program at Our Lady of Dolours is a three stage course that normally runs between July and the following June each year. Children who are baptised Catholics and 7 years of age or older are eligible to join the program.

An overview of the whole process is explored at our Sacramental Program Overview Parent Meeting. Our next meeting will be held on;

Wednesday 21 June 2017 at 7.30pm in Our Lady of Dolours Church

At this meeting, the order of the Sacraments will be discussed and the roles of parents, children, parish and school are explained. We recommend all parents enrolling a child or considering to enrol a child for the first time in our Children's Sacramental Program here at Our Lady of Dolours attend this meeting.
