At St Therese’s we offer a Sacramental Programme for children who live in our parish and the parish of Our Lady of the Nativity who do not attend a Catholic school.

The programme has three sessions, usually held at the parish with the onus being on parents to instruct their child at home in preparation for the Sacraments. 

RE programme courses going ahead will depend on enrolment numbers.

Children should undertake all the Sacraments of Initiation (beginning with Baptism and concluding with Confirmation) at the parish in which they live. If you live outside of St Therese’s Essendon or Our Lady of the Nativity parish you should seek Religious Education for your child at the parish in which you live.
