RCIA Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.
Volunteer Catechists from Guardian Angels Parish accompany, educate and assist adults and children (above 7 years of age) in the process of becoming a Catholic. It is an accompanied journey that normally begins around August each year, leading to the reception of the sacraments at Easter. It is a journey of preparation that enables questions to be asked and answered, and a discovery of what it means to be Catholic. RCIA Baptisms are held every Easter. Kindly contact the Parish Office for more details. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
CONFESSION Every Saturday 5:15-5:45pm at the church Confessional.
The 2021 Guardian Angels Parish Sacramental Program begins at 6:30pm on 7th October (Thursday) with a mandatory Parent Session with Father Thomas where he will give an orientation about the program and distribute to the parents the enrolment forms.
Enrolment in the Sacramental Program is for children who are already baptised and are in grade 3 or older and who wish to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation this year. Enrolment is done only once and it rolls over automatically for the Sacrament of Holy Communion next year, and then the Sacrament of Penance in the following year (this is the order of the reception of the sacraments in the Archdiocese of Brisbane).
Deadline for submission of completed enrolment forms and the required documentation attachments is by 13th October (Wednesday).
The dates for the Confirmation program for this year are below. There will be the option for your children to attend the three instruction classes either on Saturday evenings or Sunday mornings. This will be included in the enrolment form.
More will be explained on 7th October. We look forward to seeing you then. Thank you.
