Faith Education

Baptismal Preparation

Volunteers visit families in which a member is to be baptised.  It involves welcoming the family, discussing the sacrament of Baptism and the process on the day.  Training and formation is ongoing for the group.

After School Religious Education 

Volunteers from the Parish, under guidance from the Parish Priest, provide after school religious education classes for state school students.  At present these classes cater for children from age 5. 

In general our programmes are those of the Perth Archdiocese Catechism Programme, “The Truth Will Set You Free”, which seeks “to help children learn how to reflect God as Jesus taught in their thoughts, words, actions, expressions of emotion, choices and spiritual qualities”.

Our 2020 program for children in state schools are due to start week beginning 20 July.

  • First Reconciliation - to be advised
  • First Eucharist - Thursdays at 4pm, (10 weeks)
  • Confirmation - Wednesdays at 4pm, (6 weeks)

To register your child for these programs please complete the form HERE and return to the Parish Office.  The Catachist-teacher will then be in contact with you.

All of our Catchists are teachers with current WWC and Safeguarding clearance.

R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Have you been worshiping with us, but never officially took the step to become Catholic?
Have you been away from the church and have now returned, but want to know more?
Have you been a Catholic all your life, but never celebrated all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist)?
Have you joined us from a different background and would now like to find out more about the Catholic Church?

If any of the above questions apply to you, we would love to help you in your journey.  Or, if you know of anyone who could answer YES to any of the above questions, perhaps extend an invitation to them.

The R.C.I.A. focuses on a person’s growth in the Spirit within a Christian community.  It is a journey in faith for all who participate in the process whether they be those who are inquiring about the Catholic faith or the Catholics (sponsors) who are supporting the inquirers.  

A Sponsor of an R.C.I.A. candidate acts as a companion for their journey of faith, offering guidance and sharing life's experiences.  Sponsors find their own faith life enriched by the RCIA process. 

The R.C.I.A. meets once a week in the meeting room located at the back of the church.

R.C.I.C. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Children)

The R.C.I.C. is a similar programme to the R.C.I.A.  with children at the school invited to participate in lessons on a weekly basis from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.
