Sacramental Program

​​​Parents are the first and most important educators of their children (Declaration on Christian Education, 1968, Vatican II) and it is within the faith development of family and home that children come to a deeper realisation and practice of their faith. St Patrick’s supports the Parish in the Christian Initiation of Children (Sacramental Policy of the Archdiocese of Brisbane, 2015). Each year children are invited to join the Parish Sacramental Program at Our Lady Help of Christians Church. Whilst knowledge of the sacraments is gained through the curriculum at school, it is the parents’ responsibility to support their child through the preparation and receiving of the sacraments. Staff often attend the celebrations, supporting the candidates in this very special aspect of their faith journey.
