School Aged Sacraments

Innaloo/Karrinyup Catholic Parish welcomes school aged children within our parish to enrol to receive the Sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist and/or Confirmation. Preparation classes for each of the sacraments commence at the beginning of the school year. The 2024 sacramental dates are listed in the table below.

The Parish Sacramental Program consists of:

2. Enrolment & Commitment Masses
It is compulsory for all sacramental candidates and at least one parent/caregiver to attend an Enrolment Mass to enrol their child to prepare to receive one of the sacraments. These Enrolment Masses are held over several weekends.

3. Parent-Child Sacramental Workshop

4. Sacrament Retreat Days
