Sacramental Programs for 2020
The preparation for and celebration of the Sacraments of Confirmation, Eucharist and Penance have been postponed for 2020 until further notice.
With the July 1 easing of certain restrictions, the Sacramental Team of Our Lady of Fatima Peakhurst met to discuss the current situation and plan ahead. Based on the safety and hygiene measures, the social distancing norm of 1.5 metres and the 4 square metre per person rule that has to be adhered to, we evaluated the following:
The holding of preparation sessions for parents and children
Time needed for sufficient preparation in readiness for the reception of the Sacraments
Number of guests permissible for the celebration of Sacraments and the multiple dates needed to accommodate all children
Availability of the Bishop and Priests
After much discernment and evaluating our preparedness to go ahead, we have decided to postpone the Sacraments of Confirmation, Eucharist and Penance for 2020 until next year.
This will not affect enrolments into any Catholic schools, primary or secondary. The feeder schools will be notified of the decision that OLF Peakhurst has made for 2020.
We ask for your understanding in this matter. If you wish to discuss further any concerns, please do not hesitate to call on 0418264817 or email email@example.com.
