Sandra Borg-Fennech, Linda Melia Amanada Donahue and teaching staff from Mount Carmel and School Governors facilitiate the Sacramental Programme
The Sacramental programme consists of a series of meetings and celebrations for parents and their children (year 3) in preparation for receiving the sacraments Confirmation, Reconciliation and First Holy Communion
The Sacramental Programme is the means by which baptised children can complete their journey into full membership of the Catholic Church. Baptism is the first of three Sacraments of Initiation. The gift of God’s Holy Spirit which the children received in Baptism is strengthened in the Sacrament of Confirmation, and they complete their initiation with the reception of first Holy Communion – a public declaration that they are now fully a part of this community, this “Communion” of God’s family. The programme itself strives to help them grow into this community, and feel a real sense of belonging to the wider Family of God
The Sacramental Programme runs in parallel with the Year Three RE Syllabus in Catholic schools of the Salford Diocese. Whilst most of the children who attend our programme will be in Year Three at at Mount Carmel we do also welcome children from different schools who live in this parish, and we will adapt the programme to the needs of older children
