Sacramental Preparation

The Latin word sacramentum means “a sign of the sacred.” The seven sacraments are ceremonies that point to what is sacred and important for Christians. They are special occasions for experiencing God’s presence.

Sacramental preparation is very much a collaborative process, involving commitment and support from parents as well as the children. It is expected that our children will be attending a weekend Mass in order for them to be deemed ready for the Sacraments.

Also, every family receives a Wednesday Word resource sheet each week to promote family prayer and reflection, and teachers lead the whole school every Monday morning with an assembly based on the themes from the previous Sunday’s Gospel.


Key dates for Sacramental Preparation is shared with parents via their Class Dojo “Class Story”. Information is also shared with families at Mass on Sundays.
