Due to the current COVID-19 situation and Government regulations the Sacrament of Eucharist will now occur over 4 Sundays in Term 3. This will ensure all Government guidelines are met and adequate distancing occurs in the church.
A letter with further information, procedures and your group allocation will be sent home at a later date.
Please note, students at St Charles Primary School may enrol and pay through the School office. A copy of the child’s Baptism certificate is required as well as the permission of both parents.
If you do not attend Mary Immaculate Church on a regular basis or you attend another Parish, you will need to contact the Parish Office. Permission from your local Parish Priest is required with enrolment.
The cost per child is $30 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.
