The Rite of Baptism states: "Parents you have asked to have your child baptized.  In doing so you are accepting the responsibility of training them in the practice of the faith.  It will be your duty to bring them up to keep God's commandments as Christ taught us. " 

At present, as we are unable to gather for faith formation classes, we would like to provide you some free resources that you can use with your child/ren  at home to help continue the child/ren's religious education.

Sacramental Resources


Penance/First Holy Communion

Co-Cathedral of the Scared Heart has put out a great Penance/Eucharist program for families.



An online Confirmation series for parents to do with their children.


Given the uncertainty of these times, and the current restrictions that have been put in places, we do not know when the celebration of First Holy Communion / Confirmation will occur.  It may be possible that the original dates will stand, however, it is impossible to commit to any dates at this time.

Please remember to check out our website for the latest news and information.  Furthermore, if you have not already done so we invite you to register with FlockNotes to receive parish news by email and/or text.  A link can be found on our homepage.


No child who has regularly attended classes will need to repeat his/her current grade.
