Children's Sacramental Preparation Program
At Our Lady of Dolours, which is part of the Diocese of Broken Bay, the order of the Sacraments of Initiation for children after Baptism, begins with Confirmation then First Reconciliation before receiving First Holy Communion to complete their initiation into the Church.
Therefore, the Children’s Sacramental Program at Our Lady of Dolours is a three stage course that normally runs between July and the following June each year. Children who are baptised Catholics and 7 years of age or older are eligible to join the program.
An overview of the whole process is explored at our Sacramental Program Overview Parent Meeting. The current 2017-2018 program is already underway and will conclude with the children receiving First Communion on Sunday 20 May 2018.
