The sacraments are a key part of Church life and are celebrated within a Parish Church community. Celebrating a sacrament for the first time is an important step in the life of a child as a Catholic.
The parish of St James the Apostle offers a sacramental program to prepare those children for the sacraments who attend schools other than the parish-based St James the Apostle Primary School (Hoppers Crossing North), St Francis of Assisi Primary School (Tarneit) and St Clare’s Primary School (Truganina) and who live within the parish boundary. To register your child for First Reconciliation, First Eucharist or Confirmation, please contact the Sacramental Co-ordinator, Rachelle Revell, on 0411 774 636 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you may contact the parish office.
