First Eucharist Preparation Program
Children who attend St Charles Primary School will be prepared for their First Eucharist by their school. They can obtain information about their program from their school. All other candidates not attending St Charles Primary School will participate in a program that will be conducted by Waverley Parish and coordinated by the Parish Priest.
The First Eucharist Ceremony Mass takes approximately 1 hour and is followed by a group photograph with the priest. This Mass is a special celebration for the candidates and their families to share in. All are welcome. Children are not required to buy special outfits for the Sacrament, however they are required to dress appropriately. A general guide is how they would dress to attend a special occasion. Boys should wear long trousers and a shirt with a collar, no jeans, cargo pants or joggers. Girls should wear a dress, knee length or longer, and no midriffs or bare shoulders.
A copy of the child’s Baptism certificate is required as well as the permission of both parents. The enrolment form is not yet available. It should become available over the next couple if months. Please note, students at St Charles Primary School may enrol and pay through the School office.
The cost per child is $20 per candidate and is payable at the time of enrolment either to the Parish house during office hours, or at the parent Information session. No child will ever be denied the opportunity to receive the Sacraments due to financial limitations. Families in difficult financial circumstances should contact the parish office to discuss their situation confidentially.
