Children's Sacramental Program

The children’s sacramental program is central to our Parish.

Children’s Sacramental Program.
The introduction for our children into the Sacraments of the Church is both a spiritual and proud time for all involved. It is an introduction for children into the celebration and ceremonies when Christ touches their lives. It helps them understand  goodness. As parents, it gives us an opportunity to explain and connect with our children on spiritual aspects that they will carry with them forever. No special gifts are required from us, our companionship and witness speaks volumes to our children. We pray that God’s Spirit will guide you, as parents in helping your children.

The order of the Sacraments for children after Baptism, begin with Confirmation, then First Reconciliation (Confession), followed with receiving First Holy Communion to complete their initiation into the Church. Therefore, the Children’s Sacramental Program is three stages starting in February, May and August respectively for each of the Sacraments.  Please see below. You can discuss any questions or concerns either through your child’s school or contact our Sacramental and Catechist Coordinator, Ms Tina Muscat on 02-94841427 or

Please see our useful links section on the First Holy Communion page for great preparatory information.
