PARISH RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM (PREP)
For children that attend non-Catholic schools and for those that may have missed out on receiving sacraments due to various reasons, but do attend catholic schools. The program is for children wishing to learn about their faith so as to prepare to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Five classes are available:
- Pre-Sacramental Class for children in Yrs 1 and 2
- Reconciliation for children in Yr 3 and above
- Eucharist for children in Yr 5 and above
- Pre-Confirmation for children in Yr 5
- Confirmation for children in Yr 6 and above
Classes are held on Monday afternoons during school terms, from 4.15 to 5.30pm.
Enrollments for 2018 will take place Monday 5th February from 4pm in the Parish Centre until about 5.30pm. If you are enrolling for the first time, please bring with you your child/children's Baptism Certificate. Classes begin Monday 15th February. At enrolments you will need to complete paperwork, read our Duty of Care Statement and pay an annual fee.

Classes begin on Monday, 12th Feb., at 4.15 and conclude at 5.30 pm. Parents are asked to deliver children to the Parish Centre and collect them in person at the end of class. We will have a register for parents to sign their children in and out of class each Monday.
For children preparing to receive sacraments this year it is very important that they attend every class, baring illness, in order to ensure they are properly prepared.
