SACRAMENTS OF INITIATION - PARENT MEETING
Parents of children yet to complete the Sacraments of Initiation (Confirmation or Eucharist) are invited to a Parent Meeting at 7pm on the evening of Tuesday 7th March. It is critical that parents of children intending to enrol in 2017 attend. Those enrolling are generally turning 8 in 2017, or older.
In a slight change this year, we encourage all parents of young baptised Catholic children (regardless of age) to attend. This is a great opportunity for you to understand more fully the recent changes to Brisbane's Sacramental policy. Sr Kari Hatherell from the Archdiocese of Brisbane will offer useful information to help parents understand the policy and discern what is right for their child and family.
