Dear Parishioners and Candidates who are to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation in 2021.
We are living in an unprecedented time due to the Covid restrictions in the Greater Sydney. Despite of that we have decided to go ahead with the registration and the Confirmation Program for this year.
Until we resume our regular meetings on Sundays, we will be using the ZOOM platform for our Confirmation Preparation Meetings.
Just a few words how we plan this to be done.
Sunday 1 August until Saturday 7 August we will have a registration week.
Anybody from year 6 to year 11 can in this time (only) register online.
The Registration Form link here. The registrations not accepted after 7 August
Upon verification, as soon as possible, you will receive a zoom link in your designated email for the session and the two pdf files: the first one with materials for the program, the second one with the Essentials.
The next step will commence on Sunday 8 August at 11:30 am with the Zoom meeting you will be ask to connect to through the link provided in your email.
This will be the first session in which we also outline the program (the session will last approximately one hour).
Scheduled below religious knowledge test will go ahead when we resume our regular meetings.
The attendance in every session is mandatory for those who register in the program. Those who connect, or when we resume our regular Sunday meetings, are late for more than 10 minutes in order to complete the Program must attend the makeup session scheduled later during the week. (You will be notified by an email and sms when)
Please keep safe!
God bless you all,
Fr. Andrew Fornal OP

Parent’s Prayer after Enrolment
I [Name] present my request for the enrolment of my child [your child’s name in the forthcoming preparation process].
I understand that it is through the passing on of my own faith and beliefs that I will best support the on-going journey of my child [your child’s name].
I understand that I will do this through my own example, through sharing my experience and personal story with my child [child’s name].
I understand that I need to spend time with [child’s name] so that their faith will grow and develop.
I ask the help of God that with His grace, I will be able to do this.
Thank you God the great gift you have given us in the Sacrament of Confirmation. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit into our lives to offer us guidance and help. We ask for that guidance now, Lord. We need to know where we fit into this church of yours.
What are we to do? What do we have to offer? Where are we to serve? We have many questions. Be with us on our journey of faith, Lord; give us patience to wait for your answers. And give us an open heart to hear you when you respond.
