Sacrament of Confirmation

Families who are interested in enrolling their child/ren for the Sacrament of Confirmation in 2020 are invited to register your interest with the parish by emailing the Sacrament Coordinator on sacraments@olhc.org.au with the name of the child/ren, the school they attend, parents’ name, email address and contact number. Expression of Interest will be accepted until 26th June 2020. Child/ren should be in grade 6 this year. We request you to consider the following before you send your Expression of Interest.

  • As we do not have a Bishop, the candidates will be confirmed by the priests.
  • Due to the gathering regulations set by the government, the number of attendees per family will be 4 only – candidate, 2 adults and sponsor.
  • The parish has tentatively planned to have the celebrations on the 5th, 6th, 7th, 12th, 13th and 14th of November. These are subject to change as per the government regulations.

Sacrament of First Eucharist

Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the parish will not prepare children for the Sacrament of First Eucharist in 2020. The Parish will make allowances for families who have children in grade 5 this year, who haven’t yet made their First Holy Communion and intend receiving the Sacraments of Holy communion and Confirmation next year.

We will keep all the families updated through email once more restrictions have been eased.
