Sacraments


Each of the sacraments is able to be administered by the Clergy of the All Saints Catholic Parish; however, applicants must meet minimal requirements to be considered for the sacraments. These requirements vary in accordance with the sacrament, and include:


Baptism

Parents looking to have their children Baptised are required to contact the Presbytery to make an appointment, and parents with children over 12 months of age are required to meet with a priest beforehand. Baptisms normally take place at the All Saints Catholic Church on Sundays at 11am, with the first Sunday in the calendar month reserved for children over 12 months of age. Sundays may not always be available for Baptisms subject to Liturgical requirements, so be sure to contact the Presbytery during office hours beforehand to confirm a time.


First Reconciliation & Holy Communion

The sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion are combined as the Parish’s Partners Program. Attendance at this program is compulsory for both children and their parents, and children must be in year 3 at school or older to complete the program. For further information on the Partners Program or to register your child, contact the Presbytery during office hours.


Confirmation

The sacrament of Confirmation is open to children who have completed their other sacraments, and are in year 6 at school or older. Information sessions for Confirmation are usually held in early March, subject to demand. For further information on the programs, or to register interest in undertaking Confirmation, contact the Presbytery during office hours.


Weddings

Bookings for marriages must be made at least six months prior to the wedding day. Contact the Presbytery during office hours to arrange an appointment.


Funerals

Families can decide between a Requiem Mass (full Mass) and a funeral (abridged) service to farewell their loved ones. Contact the Presbytery during office hours to arrange an appointment.

All Saints Prayer

God of all holiness

you gave your saints

different gifts on earth

but one reward in heaven.

May their prayers be our

constant encouragement for

each of us to walk worthily

in our vocation.

We ask this through

Christ our Lord.

Amen


All holy men and women, pray for us.
