'Family focused, parish-based, Catholic school-supported'

"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." Your family celebrates the sacrament in your home parish, the parish community in which you regularly participate.

Is your child in Years 3, 4 or 6?

John XXIII College prepares children for the various sacraments during the course of the year's religious education programs: Year 3 - Reconciliation, Year 4 - Eucharist, Year 6 - Confirmation.

Enrol in your Parish for 2016

Under the guidance of the Parish Priest, each parish is a unique community and offers the Sacrament Program within the context of the Parish community. If you have not already done so, you will need to enrol your child for the Sacraments in your home parish. Parents are encouraged to begin that conversation with their child and to contact their parish priest or parish sacrament coordinator to enrol their child in the 2016 program. The John XXIII College primary curriculum includes the relevant sacrament unit content. our College is enriched by families from many Parishes, not all of them close by. Parents are encouraged to enrol in their home parish. Information for all parishes may be found on the archdiocesan website.

Some of the parishes from our main catchment area have supplied the following information.

Further information is on the College website which is updated regularly or contact: Mary-Anne Lumley, Parish Liaison

Our Community Mass is an opportunity for students, families and staff to gather.
Everyone is welcome to be part of this community celebration which begins in the Chapel and continues in the café afterwards for those able to stay. New parents are particularly welcome. All the responses are on a powerpoint - so it is 'user-friendly'!
Lent begins on Wednesday - and attending one or all of the six Friday Masses during Lent might be a practice that some families would like to consider for this season.

When: Fridays in Term time
