Preparation for the Sacraments
Sacraments are celebrations of the faith of the Christian community and ideally should be prepared for with the assistance of the community and celebrated in the presence of the community.
Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist
For Reconciliation, Confirmation and Eucharist, there is the team that assists parents in the gradual initiation of their children into full communion with the Catholic Church through the Christian Initiation of Children (CIC).
First Confession and First Holy Communion
A preparation course for the Sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Communion for children attending non-Catholic schools will commence in October after 9.30am on Sundays at St Columba’s Church. Interested parents please contact
