SACRAMENT PROGRAM

'Family focused, parish-based, catholic school-supported'
Do you have a child in Year 3, 4 or 6?
"Your unique and indispensable role in your child's Catholic Christian formation is one that both school and parish endorse and support. It is your privilege and responsibility, which follows from your commitment when your child was baptised, to present your child for the sacraments."
John XXIII College prepares children for the various sacraments during the course of this year's religious education programs: Year 3 - Reconciliation, Year 4 - Eucharist, Year 6 - Confirmation. These sacraments are then received in your home parish, the parish community in which you regularly participate.

FAQs
I have a daughter/son in Secondary who has not been confirmed. Who should I contact?
This frequently occurs when students transfer from overseas or from state schools. In the first instance, contact your parish priest or parish administrator. However if in doubt, email Mary-Anne Lumley (see below).

I know the dates in my parish - shall we just turn up on the day?
No, every parish has an enrolment process that needs to be completed in advance. Contact your parish priest or administrator to enrol.

Where can I get an enrolment form?
Enrolment forms are available from your parish, and in some cases from the website of your parish. Use the drop down box at: http://www.perthcatholic.org.au/Enrolment forms from some parishes may also be found on the College website at this link: http://www.johnxxiii.edu.au/view/parent-resources/parish

What do I need to take to enrolment?
Relevant earlier certificates - eg Baptism, Reconciliation etc.

I have heard that in my parish all students have to attend classes, even if they go to a Catholic school.
Yes, each parish is a special and unique community. Some parishes MAY request that students preparing for Sacraments (including students from Catholic schools) attend parish classes or retreats. Check with your own parish for further details.

COMMUNITY MASS

During the first few weeks of term, while Father Wilson is away, priests from some of our local parishes support us. We thank them for their support in enabling our weekly celebration of the Eucharist to continue.

Today Jesuit priest, Pham Van Ai SJ (Father Ai), from Nedlands parish presided, and our Year 10 students prepared the celebration. Thank you to all Year 10 students, leaders, teachers and families.

Next Friday 8th May, mothers are particularly welcome to join in the celebration and to receive a Mothers' Day blessing. All mothers, grandmothers, godmothers and mother figures are welcome - especially those unable to attend the special Primary Mothers' Mass the following week.

If you have any questions, please contact:

Lumley.mary-anne@johnxxiii.edu.au

Where: Chapel

Time: 8:000am - 8:30am

When: Fridays in term time.
