Sacramental Initiation is Parish based; however, Regina Caeli is welcoming of all likeminded families.
Regina Caeli presumes a combined involvement of family & Parish for Sacrament preparation.
Preparation for reception of Sacraments involves Group work sheet preparation and some craft.
Regina Caeli invites parents to work closely with the Sacramental Team to prepare the children, recognising that parents are the primary educators of their child’s faith development.
The Church stipulates parents propose, when their children are ready to receive the Sacraments. At Regina Caeli, children are welcomed from Year 2 (7 years of age and upwards), depending on readiness of the child and the recommendation of the parent. Hence, Children will be in Year 3 and upwards for reception of Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.
Sacrament Preparation Archdiocese Policy is under review but at Regina Caeli 206-2017, there is no immediate change.
