The Parish offers a Sacramental Program to students not attending Catholic schools. The program usually commences a few weeks after Term 1 starts.

Classes are held at Our Lady Star of the Sea Church (68 John Dory Drive, Ocean Grove) from 4:00pm to 5:00pm.

Parents and families are asked to contact the Program Co-ordinator or parish office before February to register their child(ren).

We require a copy of your child(ren)’s Baptism certificate and any other Sacramental Certificate (if appropriate) upon enrolment. Your child must be baptised prior to commencing the Sacramental Program.

The program fee is $100.00 per family. Note: this fee is subject to change. The fee payment is required upon enrolment. Please contact Daniella at the parish office if you have any questions or concerns.

Children can only receive one Sacrament per year. Our Sacramental Program is run by wonderful volunteers; however, our resources are limited and classes run at the same time.
