Coffs Harbour Parish offers the following Sacramental Programs for children.


Confirmation Program

Confirmation is the second (after Baptism) Sacrament of Initiation for young Catholics. In the Sacrament of Confirmation, candidates deepen and build up their supernatural relationship with Christ and His Church, begun in Baptism. They are further sealed with the Gifts of Holy Spirit and strengthened in their Catholic faith. Children are eligible to attend the Program if they have been Baptised (or received) into the Catholic Church and old enough to understand the Sacrament. Our preparation Program is Parish based and children from all local Primary and Secondary Schools (up to the age of about 14 years old) are very welcome to participate. 


For more specific information please contact the Parish Coordinator on pc@coffscatholic.com

 

First Penance (Reconciliation) and First Holy Communion Program

Holy Communion is the third (after Baptism and Confirmation) Sacrament of Initiation that completes Initiation for young Catholics. Our preparation program includes a component of preparation for First Penance/Reconciliation, also called the ‘second baptism’, in order to help prepare the children for a good reception of their First Holy Communion. Children are eligible to attend the Program if they have been Confirmed in the previous year (or earlier), before they attend this Program. The preparation Program is Parish based and children from all local Primary and Secondary Schools (up to the age of about 15 years old) are very welcome to participate.
