The St Ambrose Parish is happy to provide information about our Sacraments in 2022.

At St Ambrose, the Sacrament liturgies/masses will be held:

For detailed information (including sessions dates/times), please download our Sacramental Brochure.

Group Sessions:

The Parish Community is happy to support you in your role as parents and guardians by arranging the sacramental program in a way that assists you to prepare your child for these Sacraments. Four x 1 hour sessions will be held in St Ambrose Church prior to each Sacrament with an afternoon reflection to be held for those candidates celebrating their First Holy Communion and Confirmation. 

Attending Mass:

Attending weekend mass is an important part of our religion therefore we are requesting that the candidate and their family attend weekend mass during their sacramental journey – from the Commitment Mass to the day of their Sacrament.

Registration for Sacraments:

It is essential that we know well in advance how many children will be attending Sacraments for grouping purposes and to allow more session times or liturgies/masses if necessary, therefore, please complete the registration asap.

***No further candidates can be accepted for Confirmation as we have now started group sessions.***

There are three ways to register your child for their Sacrament:

  1. Registration forms can be completed online by clicking here.
  2. Send an email to sacraments@stambrose.org.au and request a registration form. 
  3. Hardcopies of the registration form will be available in the Church from 20/2/2022.

Cost:

The cost of each Sacrament is $50.  This covers all stationary, books, medals, certificates and flowers and helps to update all other equipment used.  The money and a photo will be requested at a later date.

Changes May Occur:

Of course, dates and times may change at any time, especially if there are COVID-related issues in our area.  Our priority will always be to keep our community safe.
