Sacramental Programme

Parish Based Programme
At St Francis de Sales we have a parish-based sacrament programme run by the parish of St Aloysius Gonzaga, Cronulla.

All programmes are designed to enhance parental involvement in the preparation of their children for the Sacraments. The programmes rely on the faith commitment of the parents to prepare the children for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Communion, and Confirmation. The parish acknowledges that parents are the primary teachers of their children in matters of faith. Thus the Sacraments are all parish-based. This is where our parish community, together with parents of the children enrolling in the sacrament, helps to organise and run the programme. We find that these parish-based programs involve "the family" a great deal more and, together with their children, mothers, fathers and guardians can renew and revitalise their own "faith journey".
