The Sacramental Program at Our Lady of Good Counsel guides our students through their journey of Christian initiation into the Church following on from their Baptism. Students are provided with preparation for their reception of the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and Confirmation.
For students attending Our Lady of Good Counsel Primary School, preparation for these sacraments occurs within the school’s Religious Education Program. For those attending other local schools, candidates are invited to attend a preparation program under the guidance of our Parish’s Catechists.
Once the preparation stage has been completed, these young people are presented for the sacrament together as one group. As a guide, students participate in sacrament programs in Year 3 (Reconciliation), Year 4 (First Eucharist) and Year 6 (Confirmation).
Students attending Our Lady of Good Counsel Primary School who are of other religions will be included in the classroom Religious Education Program. We believe this will enable all students to explore their beliefs and identify important elements of their particular religion.
