The Eucharist is “the source and the summit of the whole of the  Church’s worship and of the Christian life”. “The other sacraments, and indeed all ecclesiastical ministries and works of the apostolate, are bound up with the Eucharist and are oriented toward it. For in the blessed Eucharist is contained the whole spiritual good of the Church, namely Christ himself, our Pasch” (CCC, 1324)

First Confession & First Holy Communion 2023

This year in our Parish, children will be prepared for both their first Confession (Reconciliation) and their First Holy Communion at the same time, and the preparation will be combined into six consecutive weekly lessons at St Mel’s parish hall, to be conducted by myself, the parish priest.

If you wish to enrol your child or children (Year 3 or above) for the Sacraments of First Confession and Holy Communion, please fill in the Enrolment Form and add a copy of their baptism certificate and return by Tuesday 25 April to:

Father Joseph at the church before or after any Mass;
or email them to: [email protected]
or bring them to the parish office/ presbytery mail-box, 7 Evaline St, Campsie
or give to your child’s catechist at the Public School.

This is a very interesting and precious time for your child. It is our privilege to work with you in order to help your child in their preparation to receive the Body of Jesus Christ. We hope that this journey enriches your faith.
