Please be advised the OLA Sacramental Celebrations are Parish based and not school based. As a school, we will be supporting and assisting our Parish Priest, Fr Ken, and the OLA Parish, in preparing the students as well as coordinating the events. Please be advised the decisions made about the programs have been made by the OLA Parish and not the school.
We at OLA School will be preparing the students during the Religious Programs, and information will be distributed to all families. If your children attend Trinity Junior School, the information will be emailed to the Trinity Leadership Team in the near future. Parents of students who do not attend OLA school will have two options of obtaining the relevant information - via Trinity or the OLA Parish. All information will be available, from Trinity and the OLA Parish, from Friday 15 February. The students attending OLA will be receiving the information via class emails.
As mentioned previously, I would like to make all families aware that we, as a school, do not make the decisions about the Sacramental Celebrations, but will be supporting the decisions made by Father Ken and the OLA Parish. If you're unable to attend the Commitment Masses, workshops, etc, you will need to make contact with Fr Ken and not the school.
This year, the Commitment Masses for the Sacraments of Penance, Eucharist and Confirmation will be held on the same weekend.
Candidates who are wishing to participate in these sacraments need to complete an enrolment form (handed out in Week Three) and return it to the Parish Office. Candidates will then need to attend one of the following Commitment Masses:
- Saturday 9 March: 6.00pm
- Sunday 10 March: 7.30am, 9.30am or 5.00pm
Further information about the sacraments will be distributed to the relevant year levels in Week Three.
