In 2016, our parish, Saint Helena of the Holy Cross, in conjunction with Holy Cross College and Saint Helena’s Catholic Primary School, adopted the Archdiocesan Sacramental Policy for School-aged Children.
Key to the Archdiocesan policy is the co-operation that it invites between the parish, schools and families. In our parish, we operate under a parish-based, school-supported, family-focused model.
Sacramental preparation is undertaken as part of the Religious Education programme in the Junior School.
Students who wish to undertake a sacrament outside of these year levels are invited to participate in the after-school Parish Religious Education Programme, held at Holy Cross College each Wednesday from 3:30pm – 4:30pm.
In addition to this preparation, all students wishing to undertake a sacrament must attend a Commitment Mass, Retreat Day and a Parent-Child Interaction Workshop.
