Sacramental Programme Enrolment Form
Baptismal Certificate - If your child was baptised at a Parish Church other than Guardian Angels Wynnum, you need to provide a photocopy of their baptismal certificate.
Children should be in Year 3 or above at time of their enrolment in the Parish Sacramental Programme.
Enrolment in the Parish Sacramental Programme requires parents to fully commit to the faith development of the child/children they enrol. Faith development includes all of the following: ~ Attendance and participation in the weekly lessons, ~ Attendance at Sunday Mass, and ~ Learning and memorising the basic prayers at home before lessons begin [ Sign of the Cross; The Lord’s Prayer (Our Father ) ; Hail Mary and Glory Be ]
Lessons are compulsory. 100% attendance is required by both parent and child/children enrolled in the programme. A parent MUST accompany the child to the lessons and remain in the class. This is a requirement under child safety guidelines. On the occasion of illness or other reason, please notify us in advance or on the day itself (Sunday morning at the latest) via email or phone. Failure to do so may result in deferment of your child for the sacrament as it is very important for your child to attend.
Lessons commence promptly at 8.10am, and conclude at 8.50am, on Sunday mornings in Guardian Angels School.
A small donation to cover expenses and supply of materials if greatly appreciated.
